Making ours a Beautiful World, one Young Voice at a Time
Children's Chorus of Annapolis (ACCA) is a community chorus that
strives for vocal excellence, diversity in our membership, and making a
difference in the lives of our children by teaching them the rewards of
hard work, team play and service to the community.
We are proud of our comprehensive vocal education program that
includes regular individual vocal instruction for each child. Our
weekly rehearsals focus on vocal technique, ear training, Kodály solfege
exercises, and performance discipline.
The members of ACCA are serious about their music. There are three
levels for children ages 7 to 18: Training Chorus, Treble Chorus and
Chamber Singers. The artistic directors select music carefully to
ensure the artistic merit, the challenge to the children, and a
diversity of styles. Members
of the chorus have been selected to participate in the highly regarded
All-State Choruses, Honor Choirs of the American Choral Directors
Association conferences, as well as having landed roles with most
regional theater companies including Washington National Opera. ACCA is
the pride of Annapolis.

We are thrilled to announce that ACCA will be hosting our second annual ACCA Summer Choral Festival on June 26, 2015. ACCA has recognized an immediate need to give younger elementary aged singers in the greater Annapolis area, an opportunity to have a “mountain-top” choral music education and performance experience. There are plenty of opportunities for elementary singers to participate in musical theater camps and workshops throughout the summer, but these programs do not usually enhance and improve a child’s music literacy (their ability to read and comprehend musical notation) and choral performance practice.
This 1-day honor choir festival will bring together young singers and give them the experience of participating in a large festival choir, similar to an all-county or all-state chorus. Singers will rehearse and perform challenging, diverse and engaging repertoire over the course of the festival, and return to their home schools and communities as leaders in their music programs with renewed passion for choral music and singing.
The festival will be open to singers entering grades 4, 5, and 6 in the fall of 2015. Singers will not need to audition to participate, but they will need to be recommended by their school music teacher. Singers will receive their music and a practice CD in May and will be asked to prepare their music independently before the festival.
The tuition cost of the festival is $65 and includes their music, festival t-shirt, Friday dinner and 1 festival concert ticket.
