The Alexandria Singers


 The mission of the Alexandria Singers is to perform American popular music to inspire new generations of singers and to be recognized as a premier “pops” chorus that represents quality entertainment for all. 


  The Alexandria Singers is a unique group. As the region’s only adult pops chorus, its one-of-a-kind repertoire of American popular music offers the community an alternative to the sacred and classical music performed elsewhere. The citizens of Alexandria easily identify with the Singers because it’s composed of men and women of all ages and backgrounds. They sing music the people know and grew up with. You name it, the Singers do it – Broadway, jazz, country, patriotic and pop. The Singers are proud to represent the city and its residents. Be it a quality public performance or handing out a publicity flyer with a smile, people associate the Singers with one word - ALEXANDRIA   The Alexandria Singers has come a long way since 1975 when it was founded by 16 Alexandria residents. Currently in its 35th  year, the Singers is the premier “pops” chorus in the Washington, DC area. By day, these 40 talented men and women, of all ages and backgrounds, make the nation’s capital hum in varied careers. On stage, they dazzle audiences performing various types of American popular music. Over the decades, the Singers have represented Alexandria abroad and in countless area venues such as the Kennedy Center, Verizon Center, the White House, and DAR Constitution Hall. In addition to their continued focus on artistic excellence, the Singers maintain their commitment to the Alexandria community by singing at local shopping malls, senior centers, and community shelters.    How good are they? After viewing a performance in 1990, Molly Dickenson, author of “Thumbs Up,” summed it up, “When the Singers sing love songs, you can’t help but think of your true love. When they rock, they make you glad to be alive.” Twenty years later, the Singers are better than ever. Its creative musical team, headed by Bill Colosimo (hired in 2007 as the group’s third musical director), beat “Glee” to the punch. The Singers memorize all their music and now perform directly to their audience without a director, weaving songs together through a light-hearted, family friendly story. This artistic challenge greatly enhances the group’s sound, liveliness and stage presence. More important, it delights audiences. The Singers has a proud history and its future is bright.
