"I don't sing because I'm happy, I'm happy because I sing" - William James
Share with us the energy of your voice! Easton Choral Arts Society was created to bring
quality choral music to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and to provide local singers with the
opportunity to enhance their musical knowledge and skills in an atmosphere of joy and
camaraderie. We present three annual concerts, one in the Fall, a Christmas Programin early December, and the final season concert in Spring. ECAS is a
recognized mixed chorus of volunteer singers who seek to present the finest choral classics
in concerts of high artistic quality to a growing regional audience.
We represent a diversity in age, background and experience. Our purpose is to enrich both
the appreciation and beauty of choral music within the community and within ourselves
through practice and performance. Believing in the importance of musical education, culture
and performance, we offer programs that seek to nurture future singers and audiences

Scores from our music library are on loan to the chorus for each of the three practice/
performance periods and subsequently returned. ECAS makes its collection available to
other communities and church choirs for a nominal fee. During the season, rehearsals are
held Tuesday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., upstairs at Christ Church, 111 Harrison
Street, Easton, Maryland.
Singing truly is exciting and a lot of fun! As a volunteer chorus we recognize it is a thrill and
a privilege to sing such great music. It takes commitment and practice to perform each
individual concert at a high level of vocal excellence. We are always and actively looking for
dedicated new singers of all ages! As a singer or a patron, please join us and participate in
the experience and rewarding music-making thrill of Easton Choral Arts Society!
