The Arundel Vocal Arts Society (AVAS) is a community based, non-profit choral group dedicated to the performance of varied, mixed voice music for the benefit, education and enjoyment of its members and the surrounding communities.
AVAS has been providing outstanding performances of diverse choral music since 1983. We pride ourselves in the diversity of our programming, from classical masterworks, operetta, pops, folk music, lighter favorites and Broadway.
The chorus presents an annual series of at least two concerts and supports the creative environment of our community by collaborating with other local musical groups. AVAS membership is open to adults 18 and older. It is the intent of the chorus membership to reflect the cultural diversity of the community it serves.
2013-2014 Concert Series
The Arundel Vocal Arts Society is in its 31st year of sharing beautiful choral music!!! Our first concert is Sunday, December 8th at 3pm, Eastport United Methodist Church. Christmas Around the World will feature carols from various lands, languages and genres. Combining with harp, oboe and percussion, it is sure to be a 'heavenly' afternoon. A reception in the Fellowship Hall will follow the performance.
On January the 12th at 3pm, we collaborate once again with the Londontown Symphony Orchestra (LSO) (Anna Binneweg, conductor) for a repeat performance of Morton Lauridsen's lush Lux Aeterna and a medley from the classic musical Showboat. Calvary United Methodist Church on Rowe Boulevard is the location. Tickets are $15 and $10 for senior citizens.
Our Spring Concert will take place on April the 26th, Saturday evening at 7:00 pm. This time we return to the lovely intimate sanctuary of St. Margaret's Episcopal Church (Annapolis) site of several of our second yearly concerts. Rehearsals for this program will begin on January 22nd, 7:30 pm, at the Severna Park Community Center.
Tickets for each of the two performances are $20; each paying adult entitles one school-age child free admission. Tickets can be obtained at the door or from a member of AVAS. Hope to see you there!
