Arundel Vocal Arts Society

The Arundel Vocal Arts Society (AVAS) is a community-based, nonprofit 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, including contemporary choral works, classical masterworks, operetta, pops, folk music, lighter favorites and Broadway.

The chorus presents an annual series of two concerts and supports the creative environment of our community by collaborating with other local musical groups. AVAS membership is open to adults and it is the intent of the chorus membership to reflect the cultural diversity of the communities it serves.

We rehearse Wednesday evenings at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 461 College Pkwy, Arnold, MD 21012 from 7:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. If you love to sing choral music, come and check us out. For more information, please go to the About Us page

Our Mission 

The Arundel Vocal Arts Society creates great musical experiences and contributes a unique music presence to Anne Arundel County. We provide opportunities to learn, create, share, make friends, and love music. Through our singular, distinct and uncommon programs, we move and change those who experience our concerts. 

Our Vision

We strive to be Anne Arundel County’s premiere chamber vocal ensemble. We create and perform music programs that reflect the human experience throughout the ages and in our current time. Our music inspires, challenges and engages our members and our audiences.

We believe that “All Voices Are Significant

We appreciate and cherish the special and distinct voice each person has and how it contributes to the voices of our families, neighbors and communities. We listen to them and work to find a way to musically express and amplify their concerns.  Our collective voices can contribute significantly to build a better community.  Through music, we wish to support you, lift you up and strengthen your resolve to make a difference.  

AVAS is proud to have received grants in 2021, 2022 and 2023 from the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County to assist us in providing quality performances to the citizens of Anne Arundel County.
