Rachel M. Schlesinger

Concert Hall

We opened our 50th season in October at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall with a program entitled The Spheres, featuring composers Gabriel Faure (Requiem), Ola Gjeilo (Sunrise Mass), and Alexandria's Jonathan Kolm (Pieces of Night), all set for choir and strings. Gjeilo's Sunrise Mass, the focal point of this fall program, "takes us on a journey," incorporating texts from the Ordinary of the Mass with musical themes that "evolve from nebulous and pristine to more emotional and dramatic," walking the listener along a spiritual path "from the heavens to earth."

Spheres and Beers! Rotation Beer, members of the Alexandria Society of Homebrewers, are proud supporters of Alexandria Choral Society. Excited to celebrate ACS’s 50th year with brews from our inaugural year, they joined ACS after the concert to enjoy delicious libations hand-crafted right here in Alexandria
