The Alexandria Singers have been and continue to be one of the premier pops choruses in the DC area, and maybe even the entire region!! I was privileged to attend this year's "Reflections" holiday performance on Saturday night, and it was wonderful -- extraordinary vocal quality, complete engagement of every performer on stage, a variety of musical genres, culturally representative (both the repertoire and the chorus members themselves), and thoroughly entertaining. As a professional musician and singer (and having put on countless concerts and performances myself), I can honestly say that this group embodies all that is good vocal craft and high entertainment value! Don't miss this group's upcoming performances -- you won't be sorry!

I have attended many choral concerts in the DC are, including the Alexandria Singers, over the years. However, The Alexandria Singers seem to be the group that I enjoy more every year and that I feel is truly moving forward in presentation, talent and theme. Over the past few years the shows have become increasingly more professional and sophisticated, whereas in the earlier years the concerts, especially the holiday concert, was quite juvenile and geared towards children. The backdrops are simple and elegant, and the reflective narrations are quite touching. With the addition of a few classical pieces and what seems to be a larger men's section, the power of this group is quite amazing. If you have a chance, go see this group.

A friend of mine has been in the Alexandria Singers for many years. It has been fun to see her in shows and see her get better and better as a performer. Everyone associated with the group is kind and giving. They do a holiday gift program every year for a homeless shelter. It's always impressed me that they are not only doing what they love, but also working to help the community in different ways. Great Job Alexandria Singers!

I just attended my third holiday concert. I am continually amazed at the talent of such a diverse group of singers and musicians. The concert has become a definite holiday must. The Singers bring such joy to the community. Young and old in the audience are enthralled and leave the concert feeling jubilant.

I participate in this nonprofit and the lives of my husband, wider family, and friends have all benefited from the joy and fellowship we receive from the Alexandria Singers. The Singers provide both an opportunity to express my vocal and dramatic talents and my desire to give back to the community. From singing in holiday concerts to Cabarets, for a local homeless shelter, and community arts events, the ability to volunteer my talents to bring smiles to those in the community has been greatly enhanced by the Singers. Come out to our shows, support us as an organization committed to service, or better yet, audition to join us!

I had an opportunity to see the Alexandria Singers at several venues, including a private country club in Alexandria, VA, and they have been terrific every single time! Great energy, very well rehearsed, tight harmonies, and a very happy and enthusiastic group of performers.

I attended The Alexandria Singers holiday show "Reflections" last month, and although I've ALWAYS enjoyed their performances, this one was exceptionally outstanding! I've attended approximately 4 performances in the past three years and am so impressed by the growth of the group both in size and in quality. The sound, blend and dynamics were splendid! From fun, to touching to poignant - this performances was an absolute delight! Go see this group whenever you have a chance!

The Alexandria Singers presented a concert at Mount Aventine in Chapman State Park, Indian Head, Maryland in October 2015 as part of our "inaugural" season of free concerts in the Park.

The music was great and the Singers were very supportive in helping organize and publicize this event. A very enjoyable afternoon with a great group of people. We would love to repeat the event next year. We applaud their efforts to expand their good work to our side of the Potomac. Thanks to all.

The first time that I heard the Alexandria Singers perform I knew that this was the group for me. The music is fun, warm, and engaging, bringing pleasure to the singers and their audience. The sense of community among the singers is palpable and infectious. The opportunity for the Alexandria Singers to spark joy in communities throughout the D.C. metro area is boundless. Come see for yourself!

I have been singing with this community-based adult show chorus since 2001. It is one of the most important and meaningful aspect to my life and happiness. It combines my joy of singing and performing, with a group of people who have become not only dear friends, but also a family in how we care for and support each other. Additionally, our music director and creative director have significantly raised the bar over time in the quality of our performances and by providing training and education to elevate our capabilities. Joining the Alexandria Singers is one of the best decisions I've ever made.

I have been a member of the Alexandria Singers for 19 years. I love to sing and enjoy the type of music we perform, which is unique to the Washington, DC, metropolitan area. Along with having a great sound, the singers are a wonderful group of people who get along with each other and have fun! Over the years we have sung at many locations in the area, with many repeat performances. We also recently had the opportunity to sing Rodgers & Hammerstein music in Salzburg, Austria, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the filming of "The Sound of Music!" This was an incredible experience for the group.

I have been a member of the Alexandria Singers since 1999. When I joined The Singers it was a fun group that performed music I enjoyed. Over the years the group has become more and more professional and has attracted some very talented singers. It's amazing how much of an impact the small changes that our director, Bill Colosimo, asks us to make affect the groups' sound quality. Our artistic director, Karen Reedy, is an exceptional teacher who creates choreography that looks great while also being simple enough that it doesn't get in the way of our singing. In addition to our main performances, we also sing at city events, retirement homes, shelters, and other community organizations. We put on high-quality shows for free or low costs that our audiences enjoy and we have a great time doing it.

I was invited to an Alexandria Singers performance by a friend who sings with them. What a delightful evening! The performance was enjoyable, the singers were fantastic and talented, and a good time was had by all. If you are in the Alexandria, VA area (or anywhere in the DC Metro, for that matter), check them out. Highly entertaining with just the right amount of cheeky humor -- appropriate for all!

I have been a member of several community based non-profits for many, many years and have enjoyed this outstanding group more than any. With a director that truly cares, understands, teaches and gives an honest appraisal of talent and how it can be best used in a pop choral setting, I expect that you will continue to hear "The Alexandria Singers" used at some of your best entertainment venues in the Washington DC metropolitan area and also nationally and internationally. Excellent!

I started singing with the Alexandria Singers this year and am increasingly impressed with the good hearts and voices of everyone I've met in the group so far. They care about making others happy and strive to do so through their singing. Terrific organization!
