Adelaide Chamber Singers believes strongly in the power and the passion of vocal chamber music and the profound impact it can have in our lives. 

In 2022, ACS was delighted to announce its new seasonal ensemble, ACS².

In 2023, ACS² will be involved in three programs:

  • Us – a dedicated ACS² concert as part of ACS Season 2023
  • Silver and Gold – a combined Christmas concert with Baroque chamber ensemble, Adelaide Chamber Singers and ACS² as part of ACS Season 2023

ACS² provides:

  • Valuable training in a wide range of high-level choral ensemble skills under the directorship of Christie Anderson and Carl Crossin, with vocal mentors from the Adelaide Chamber Singers Core
  • A career pathway for emerging or established choral singers who aspire to work at a professional level
  • Opportunities to perform at the highest level when combining with ACS Core ensemble

Due to its seasonal nature, we believe that being a member of ACS² will allow singers to continue to participate in their ‘home’ choir. We also hope that these ACS² experiences will impact positively on the other choirs the ACS² members sing with.
