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 40 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.

FAQs for Singers Interested to Join us

  • We welcome interested singers to join us near the start of each semester (August and January).  Please contact us (president@aikenchoralsociety.org) at any time to arrange an audition.

  • Rehearsals are Monday evenings from 7 to 9 pm.  Check the For Our Singers page for the location and any important announcements. 

  • Singing members should be able to match pitch and follow the Director's instructions.  The ability to read music is desired, but for the highly-motivated member, not required.

  • Our season is divided into two semesters – Winter (end of August through mid-December) and Spring (January through mid-May).

  • Dues are $30 per semester, and there are no extra music fees.

  • We’re more than just a chorus...we are a caring community of musicians who love to sing.
