Overview

 Following the recent resignation of Wes Lockfaw due to his relocation out of the area Easton Choral Arts is seeking a new Artistic Director. Mr. Lockfaw directed ECAS for the past 12 years.

For the 2022-2023 season the chorus will perform two concert programs, one in December 2022 and one in April or May 2023. Each concert is presented twice.

The new AD will lead the chorus in weekly two-hour rehearsals on Tuesday evenings. Our accompanist will be available for most scheduled rehearsals.
