Musicians Win Alex Award

The Alexandria Choral Society and the Alexandria Harmonizers have won The Alex, which is presented to an Alexandria performing artist or performing arts organization that has made an outstanding contribution to the City of Alexandria.

The bronze paperweight shaped like a star and engraved "Alex 1987" and the name of the awardee is given annually by the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce's Performing Arts Committee.

The Alexandria Choral Society, directed by Kerry Krebill, is a 40-member chamber chorus of amateur singers that presents three major programs each year.

The 168-member Alexandria Harmonizers, founded in 1948, was named the International Barbershop Chorus Champions in 1986. They have performed 34 times in several cities across the country during the past 13 months.

The chamber also gave a special Alex to the Oliver Carr Company for its outstanding support to the performing arts in Alexandria. The company donated office space to the American Showcase Theatre and The Alexandria Symphony.
