The Andover Choral Society is a community-based organization with a mission of providing the highest standard of musical performance to the Merrimack Valley community. Since 1929 our membership has been open to anyone with a love for great choral music and a strong desire translate that love into high-quality, engaging performances.
We are a warm, friendly, and welcoming group ranging across all ages, professions, religious and ethnic backgrounds. We are a community whose experiences run the gamut from university and private training to “never tried it before – thought it might be fun.” It is this very diversity that has allowed us to thrive for so many years, and we are always ready to accept the refreshing input of new membership.
Fall 2021/Winter 2022
We invite all who enjoy singing classical choral music to join us for in-person rehearsals this fall. Open rehearsals for our winter 2022 concert will be held on Monday, September 20 & 27, 2021 from 7:20 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Christ Church in Andover. Singers must show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination when attending rehearsal for the first time. Surgical-grade masks will be required and available at the open rehearsals.
ACS traditionally rehearses from 7:20-9:30 pm at Christ Church in Andover during most Monday evenings from September through mid-May. The first step in joining the Andover Choral Society is coming to one of our open rehearsals. Prospective singing members are encouraged to check us out during the first two rehearsals for each concert. 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.
