The Achill Choral Society, now in its 35th season, is a mixed, auditioned, 75-voice community choir, established in 1982 and based in the country hamlet of Achill, near Alliston, Ontario. ACS performs twice yearly, at Christmas and in the spring. Auditions are held in September and January. The choir gathers Wednesday evening at St. John’s Anglican Church (Highway 9, 6km east of Orangeville) to rehearse.
A. Dale Wood’s retirement in 2017, after 30+ years conducting Achill, led to the appointment of of Shawn Grenke who has been accompanist to the Elmer Iseler Singers, and the Amadeus Choir, where he is also associate conductor.
We welcome all to enjoy our upcoming spring concerts – April 21 in Alliston, and April 28 in Orangeville. Check details on our website at achill.ca.
