Happy New Year from the ACC!

ACC 2018We’re so grateful to the Reverend Dr. Alexander Duncan, Jr. – better known to us all as “Pastor Alex” – and the Arlington Forest United Methodist Church for allowing us to conduct our weekly rehearsals and biannual concerts there free of charge.

This Sunday, January 7, a group of our choristers will be “singing in the new year” at the 10:00 service. Please bundle up and join us at 4701 Arlington Blvd, Arlington, VA 22203!

ACC Choristers Shine at Holiday 2017 Concert!

The Arlington Children’s Chorus wrapped up its fall 2017 season with a free concert on Sunday, Dec. 17, at Arlington Forest United Methodist Church.

ACC_2017WinterConcertFlier 10-23-17 FINALSome 150 family members, friends, and community members gathered to listen to the children sing songs ranging from “Button Up Your Overcoat” to “Jingle Bells.”

With their voices carrying the joys of the holiday season to each person in the audience, the concert provided a wonderful opportunity to showcase the hard work and dedication of our choristers – and the staff, families, and volunteers who support the ACC throughout the year.

The bake sale was a resounding success and we’d like to thank the many families who donated treats, as well as the following vendors, whose support year after year is greatly appreciated: Baguette Republic, Bread & Water Company, Great Harvest Bread Co., Jerusalem Restaurant, Livin’ the Pie Life, Village Sweet, and The Fresh Market. Please support these generous local businesses whenever possible and take a few seconds to thank them for their ongoing support for the ACC!

Thanks, also, to those families who contributed to our holiday food drive. The ACC collected several bags of non-perishable food, which were donated to the Arlington Food Assistance Center, better known as AFAC, and will be distributed to individuals and families throughout our community who are in need.

Wishing everyone a healthy and happy holiday season! See you next year!

“I had the pleasure of conducting the Arlington Children’s Chorus at the Kennedy Center in conjunction with our recent Nutcracker performances,” said Ramona Pansegrau, Music Director of the Kansas City Ballet.

“The children sounded lovely, adding a magical ambiance to the Snow Scene.  They were extremely well-prepared and mannered.  A delight all around,” she said.

Congratulations to our singers and the ACC team, led by Artistic Director Kevin Carr, and many thanks to our ACC families for everything you did behind the scenes to make this year’s performances run so smoothly!
