The Acadia Choral Society is committed to creating a professional-level musical experience that not only entertains but also inspires and challenges our audiences and members. We sing music of diverse periods and styles with attention to beautiful choral sound, appropriate performance practice, musical expression, and textual understanding. We strive to be recognized as an asset to the cultural life of our community and our state.
The Acadia Choral Society will perform a nature-themed concert in May 2016 at St. Saviour’s Church in Bar Harbor. The concert will include a newly-commissioned piece by distinguished local composer George Emlen. Mr. Emlen has long been a major figure in the musical life of Mount Desert Island. In addition to our other nature-themed repertoire, primarily by American composers, we are particularly eager to present his inspiration on the theme of celebrating our past and inspiring our future in Acadia.
