ACS in the Community

How ACS Supports the Local Community

The Athens Choral Society has been serving the local community since 1972.

Musical Opportunities for the Community
The Athens Choral Society has served the Athens community since 1972 by providing opportunities for people to participate in, and attend, free choral concerts. We provide the community with opportunities to learn about great, classical choral works, as well as newer and less well-known choral pieces. As Athens oldest, non-audition chorus, we are

  • Open to all
  • Diverse
  • An opportunity for musical growth
  • An opportunity to hear 2 free choral concerts each year

Support for Local Charities
In addition, each summer we select a local charity and request donations during each of four performances of our summer show, reaching over a thousand people. We have raised thousands of dollars for local charities such as

  • Food Bank of Northeast Georgia
  • The Ark
  • Athens Area Homeless Shelter
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Local USO
  • Athens Community Council on Aging
