The Acadia Choral Society

Music that inspires and strengthens community….


Welcome to the website for 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 chorus is planning now for a concert this December. We will begin rehearsing at the Moore Center in Ellsworth on September 21, 2021. Please go to the Singers Study Guide in the For Singers tab above for sign-up information. Please join us, there’s room still for more singers in all parts.

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.
