Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, AVAS has decided to suspend preparation for a 2020 Winter Concert. We will reassess our options for a Spring 2021 concert as we approach the new year. However, we will continually post information about other offerings on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/avaschorus/ and on Instagram @avaschorus and on Twitter #firstpostoninstagram#thingstodoinannapolis#annapolismd#annapolisarts#communitychoir
Normally, our rehearsals are held on Wednesdays at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 461 College Pkwy, Arnold, MD 21012 at 7:45 p.m. If you are interested in singing with us or have questions about our upcoming events or would like to volunteer to help us, please visit our Contact Us page.
While choral experience is not a requirement to join, some prior musical knowledge and ability makes learning the music easier. A simple audition may be requested of you. Please bring a short, familiar piece. An accompanist will be available.
