December 2022 Austrian Advent Celebration!

After a long hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are pleased to announce our first event for 2022:

Please join us for an Austrian-style Advent celebration on Friday, December 9th, 2022, 4:30-7:00 pm at the Arts Club of Washington at 2017 I Street NW, Washington, DC 20006.

The event will feature both Advent and Christmas music by our beloved Alpine Singers under the leadership of Carol Traxler. There will also be Gluehwein, Weihnachtskekse (Christmas cookies), and other seasonal goodies.

As a sign of our gratitude for your faithful membership over the years, we are offering this event free of charge to our members only but encourage your generous tax-deductible contributions in the form of a check to either AACS or the SOS Children's Villages, our charity of choice.

Members, please reserve your ticket early as space will be limited. After Nov 15, non-members are invited to join at a promotional rate of $ 25.00 per person (Eventbrite fees already included).


2020 Kaffehausjause!

In conjunction the Austrian Cultural Forum of Washington, the AACS was once again graced by the world renowned musical talents of Dr. Stan Engebretson, accompanied by Mr. Luke Ratcliffe, Ms. Suzanne Karpov, and Mr. Daniel J. Smith, for our Kaffeehaus Jause at the Austrian Embassy. Along with welcoming remarks from the new Ambassador Mr. Martin Weiss, a full house enjoyed music and delicacies from Master Chef Wilhelm Jonach.

2019 St. Nikolaus/Advent Celebration!

Our annual St. Nikolaus and Advent celebration was held once again at the Concord Club in downtown Washington, where members and friends were treated once again to an afternoon of singing, holiday delicacies, our silent auction for SOS Children's Villages, and of course a visit from St. Nikolaus himself.

Viennese Christmas Ball

The AACS was proud to be part of one of the season's most prestigious events, taking place on December 6th, 2019, at the Perry Belmont House, The Viennese Christmas Ball!

At our champagne reception, we were happy to donate 2 tickets to the annual "Salute to Vienna!" concert at Strathmore, in addition to two free AACS annual memberships!
