The Acadia Choral Society

Music that inspires and strengthens community….


Welcome to the Acadia Choral Society.

We invite you to explore this website and learn about our concerts and other events.

ACS has been performing concerts for almost 50 years  in downeast Maine, performing in both Bar Harbor and Ellsworth. The performance this past December was a first live performance in the area, singing for three concerts, two of which were sold out.

The chorus is getting ready to start rehearsals January 25, 2022 at the Moore Center for concerts in May. Tickets are not yet on sale but will be soon and we encourage you to make sure to secure tickets early as seating will be limited to maintain social distancing.

In December we sang and rehearsed masked and we anticipate the same for the May concerts.

We would love to have you join the chorus. Check in on the For Singers pages to learn more and to sign up!

If you want to ask questions, just write to

Meanwhile, keep singing out your own song into this world. Music heals and, even at a sage distance, engenders community.

We also invite your financial support and hope you will join us in keeping the possibility of choral singing strong in our minds and hearts.
