Looking for a Fun Way to Say “I Love You” this Valentine’s Day?

By | January 26, 2015

The ACC has you covered!

With February fast approaching, don’t get stuck in the same old grocery store flowers and drug store candy rut!

Do something really special for your family and friends this year while at the same time supporting the Arlington Children’s Chorus.

For $10, you can purchase a singing Valentine-Gram that members of the chorus will “deliver” via telephone between the hours of 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. on Valentine’s Day (Saturday, February 14).

This year, our talented choristers will sing Elvis Presley’s timeless ballad “Love Me Tender.”

The proceeds will benefit ACC programming, including assisting with scholarships.

This is a fun, fun, fundraiser for the ACC and we hope you will join us to help spread the love, and our love of music!!

Way to Go, ACC Kids and Families!!!

By | December 15, 2014

Whew! The last few weeks have certainly been busy for our choristers and their families, with a flurry of music starting with two wonderful performances at the Willard Hotel on Dec. 5. Next came our fabulous Winter Concert two days later and then seven – yes, SEVEN! – performances with Ballet West’s presentation of The Nutcracker at the Kennedy Center Dec. 10-14.

It’s been an exhausting, exhilarating, and all-around incredible experience – what a way to wrap up the season!

Stay tuned for some photos highlighting our ACC kids and thanks so much to everyone for supporting our efforts!!

December is shaping up to be a busy, busy month for the Arlington Children’s Chorus with the next few weeks chock-full of fabulous events.

December 5 (5:30 & 7:30, Willard Hotel, Washington, DC)
We’ll start things off December 5 with two free performances at the Willard Hotel in DC. Located just a block from the White House at the corner of 14th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, the Willard is considered to be the birthplace of political lobbying. Our choristers will doing their own version of “lobbying,” singing a well-rounded selection of seasonal favorites at 5:30 p.m. and again around 7:15 p.m.

December 7 (6:00, St. George’s Episcopal Church, Arlington, VA)

On Sunday, December 7, at 6:00 p.m., the ACC will host our Winter Concert at St. George’s Episcopal Church (915 N. Oakland Street, Arlington, 22203).

In conjunction with this event, we’ll be conducting a bake sale fundraiser featuring delicious treats donated by wonderful local establishments, including The Fresh Market (Alexandria), Great Harvest Bread Co. (Alexandria), Harris Teeter (N. Harrison St., Arlington), Heidelberg Pastry Shoppe (Arlington), Pastries by Randolph (Arlington), Safeway (N. Harrison St., Arlington).

The Chorus is also conducting a food drive to benefit the Arlington Food Assistance Center during the concert, so please consider bringing a non-perishable food item in support of this community service effort.

December 10-14 (7:30, plus 1:30 shows Sat. & Sun), Kennedy Center, Washington, DC)
The ACC is honored to be singing with Ballet West’s production of The Nutcracker at the Kennedy Center December 10-14. They will participate in a total of seven performances – one at 7:30 p.m. each day and two 1:30 p.m. matinees on Saturday the 13th and Sunday the 14th.

We hope you’ll be able to join us for one or all of these great opportunities to hear our children sing!
