The ACC Spring Concert was a huge success! The full chorus led off with The Star-Spangled Banner and It’s a Small World before the individual groups’ performances and then finished off with two spectacular numbers with the full chorus again. Mr. Carr taught the audience the Greek Alphabet while they participated with the ACC singing in round. We look forward to another amazing year!
After a last minute change due to an impending snow-storm, the winter-themed concert showcased the Bel Canto, Troubadour and Dolce choristers led by their artistic director Kevin Carr. The program was holiday themed and included some beautiful lesser-known pieces along with some traditional holiday songs.
A huge thank-you to everyone involved!
On December 11, 2018, our Bel Canto and Troubadour choristers entertained in the beautifully decorated lobby of this elegant D.C. landmark while visitors and guests mingled. ACC’s repertoire included pieces from several cultures as well as seasonal favorites.
The ACC performed at the Kennedy Center in conjunction with the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra accompanying Ballet West for the seven-show run. Singing at the world-renowned performing arts center right here in our own backyard was an experience that will last a lifetime for our young choristers. Imagine the memories they’ll share for years.
Come check out the ACC performing live at the Willard Hotel on Tuesday, December 11 from 5-7 pm in the beautifully decorated and world-famous lobby.

Check out these pictures from our evening of singing for PBS (Nov. 16, 2018). We sang the themes for Sesame Street, Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, and Arthur TV shows at the Top of the Town restaurant in Rosslyn with magnificent views of our nation’s capital.
The Keynote speaker was Sonia Manzano – though most of us remember her as Maria from Sesame Street. Named one of the “25 Greatest Latina Role Models Ever” by Latina Magazine, she has won 15 Emmy awards, a Peabody award for her writing, and is an accomplished stage actor.
