Celebrate the Classics
May 4th, 2019
At its final concert for the 2018-19 season, the choir performed Haydn's Missa Brevis in F, with guest singers Emily Helferty (left, pink dress) and Molly Helferty (right, purple dress).
It was a sold out concert! This is a sign that the Arnprior Community Choir is known for its excellent choral singing, interesting programs and professional presentation. Wonderful to have such a support audience in our community.
For more pictures from this concert and others, please go to the heading "Photo Gallery: ACC at Work".
We're now off for the summer . . . have a great one, and we'll see you in September . . .
The Arnprior Community Choir has always had a goal of providing entertainment throughout the local area through presentations of a variety of music to organizations and groups; hiring young emerging soloists originally from the Ottawa Valley who are developing their musical careers; and providing choral music that both challenges and entertains its membership in an enthusiastic and uplifting rehearsal. Please join us for our 28th season in making a joyous sound!
Lisa Webber, Musical Director
About the Arnprior Community Choir
A little history . . . The Arnprior Community Choir (ACC) was first established in 1991 as a course within the night school Continuing Education program at the Arnprior District High School. This support allowed the community choir to create a “home” in which to develop and flourish as a musical ensemble. Founded by the current musical director, Lisa Webber, the choir quickly doubled, then tripled in membership, and has become a mainstay in the cultural arts community scene.
For the full story of this amazing choir, see
"The little choir that grew . . . the story of the Arnprior Community Choir"
under PHOTO GALLERY: ACC AT WORK above.
Today's ACC . . . The size of the choir now varies from 65 to 85 members, both men and women, with ages ranging from 14 to 83! With the 2019-20 session, the choir will rehearse for three concerts: one in December 2019, one in March 2020, and one in May 2020 (Dessert Musicale)
Choir members meet Tuesday nights at the Arnprior Legion at 49 Daniel Street in Arnprior from 7:30 to 9:30 to rehearse.
The 2019-20 session will be the 29th year for the ACC.

Please note: Should you register and pay for a session (or both sessions) and decide later to withdraw, refunds are only available up to September 30th for the fall session and up to January 31st for the winter session.
New members: New members are always welcome -- whether Soprano, Alto, Tenor, or Bass. You are not required to audition, and no previous experience is needed. Although it would be great if you can read music, it’s not essential. What we most look for from our members is a love of singing and a commitment to attend each rehearsal session and concert.
