The Andover Choral Society is a community-based, SATB organization dedicated to providing exceptional musical performances for the Merrimack Valley community. Since 1929, membership has been open to anyone with a love of choral music and a desire to translate that love into high-quality, engaging performances.
We are a warm, friendly, and welcoming group made up of singers of all ages, professions, and backgrounds. We come from towns throughout northeastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. Our singers range from those who are professionally trained to those who have “never tried it before and thought it might be fun” and we hope you will consider joining us!
We invite all who enjoy singing classical choral music to join us for in-person rehearsals this spring. Open rehearsals will be held on Monday, February 13 and Monday, February 20 from 7:20 to 9:30 p.m. at Christ Church in Andover. Our spring concert, entitled “Sunday with Salieri and Schubert” is scheduled for May 7, 2023. The chorus will be performing Franz Schubert’s Mass in G and Antonio Salieri’s Mass in D. Singers will be required to wear masks for rehearsals.
The first step in joining the Andover Choral Society is coming to one of our open rehearsals to check us out. Although we do not audition prospective members, an ability to match pitch and read music is a prerequisite. The music director listens to each new member individually to test for voice quality and range, to ensure that singers are seated in the voice section that best fits their voice and the needs of the ensemble. Regular attendance and committed participation are obvious requirements.
