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.
