Aiken Choral Society
Who we are
First and foremost, we are a community chorus dedicated to providing
the best singing experience to interested and talented singers
throughout the Aiken area. Our repertoire is wide – from early music
to last year’s hit movie theme. Brahms in German, Puccini in Italian,
or John Williams in English – we celebrate the best in composition and
we welcome you to join us. Our Board of Directors has a long history – over 60 years – of hiring outstanding and highly-qualified Artistic Directors who believe in our mission to inspire you, our singers and our audiences, through the performance of music of all eras.
· Rehearsals are Monday evenings from 7 to 9 pm at Cornerstone Baptist Church on the Aiken Bypass.
· Our season is divided into two sections – Winter (September to mid-December) and Spring (January through May).
· Dues are $30 per semester, and there are no extra music fees. Don’t let funding keep you away – just talk to our Board President.
· We’re more than just a chorus...we are a caring community of musicians who love to sing.
· ACS is a 501(c)(3) public charity. Contributions are deductible as allowed by law, and...

Aiken Choral Society Announces
our new education outreach project to help grow the vocal music programs of our local high schools. Thanks to the generous donations of those attending this year's Madrigal Dinners, we were able to launch the project with a grant of $1000 to South Aiken High School, impacting over 120 students and their teacher. In the Spring, the SAHS singers will join us for our concert and the award of a $500 scholarship to one of their graduating seniors.
If you would like to help us reach even more schools with this inspirational project, please donate today. One hundred percent of your tax-deductible gift will be used to support FutureVoices.
For general donations to ACS, please go to the Support Us page.
