This remarkable vocal ensemble from the Bitterroot Valley of Western Montana has received wide audience acclaim since 2003. The Society performs regionally, promoting awareness and appreciation of the art of a cappella singing through live performance, recordings and educational programs in schools.
Under the direction of Artistic Director Don Matlock, these all volunteer, non-professional singers create their own unique blend and signature sound. Typical selections range from Renaissance madrigals to vocal jazz, classic love songs, patriotic, folk tunes and toe-tapping gospel, with interesting new arrangements and challenging music styles.
The chorus demonstrates its versatility by performing at concerts, private bookings and as guest artists at music festivals, community and civic events. In 2005, this intrepid group of Montanans raised funds and traveled to San Francisco to participate as guest artists at the Great Dickens Christmas Fair, a truly magical re-creation of Victorian London.
Celebrating the Holiday season with concerts like stage productions and journeying back in time attired in 1800’s period costumes, the Society delights audiences with a diverse repertoire of both secular and sacred music spanning eight centuries, multiple cultures and languages.
In their debut album "Christmasse Comes But Once A Year", the Montana A Cappella Society presents a distinctive collection of holiday music resonating with the group’s characteristic sound and precision.
The Montana A Cappella Society is a non-profit, public benefit corporation.
