What We Offer

In return for your commitment and energy we offer you the opportunity to sing with one of the most exciting and innovative choral groups in Ann Arbor.

Each season we explore significant new repertory and revisit some of the old choral masterpieces with a fresh and historically informed approach. The professional soloists and instrumentalists with whom we collaborate are among the finest in the area.

AACS produces several concerts annually. When you audition to join the choir, we assume that you are committing to an entire season of singing, and preference will be given to those members who will sing in all of the concerts. However, we know that everyone's life does not always fit choir calendars, and we are open to discussion about your scheduling needs. While we do audition people throughout the year if there are openings, the majority of our auditions are held during the summer when all members re-audition and when all seats are open. Joining the choir at a later date will depend upon the discretion of the Musical Director.

Dues and Expenses

Dues are currently $50 per half-season and are payable by the end of September. Members must have a black choral music folder for all performances. Membership dues are a necessary means to help support our musical goals and are used to fund rehearsal venues, our accompanist and a portion of the Musical Director's time.

Dues for students are reduced.
