Founded in 1975, the Ad Hoc Singers is an amateur chamber chorus devoted to traditional choral literature from the 15th through the 20th centuries, with some emphasis on Renaissance masses and motets. We perform regularly at churches and other locations throughout the area. We rehearse Wednesday evenings from September through May in Arlington, VA. Good sight readers interested in joining the group should call Louise Lee at 703-538-2557 or send email to our auditions address to set up an audition.
