The arts are essential in building vital communities. Meaningful arts programming can connect us as a society and revitalize us as individuals. Art is fundamental to a well-rounded educational system and a prospering economy. Communities that integrate art into their culture possess a universal language to interpret the past and envision the future. Central Jersey has a vibrant and diverse cultural landscape. CJAC ensures communities have access to everything this region has to offer.

Carteret Community Chorus 2024

Carteret Community Chorus – “Lend Us Your Voice”

If you enjoy singing, meeting new people, and leaving the house, the Carteret Community Chorus is the group for you. It is not necessary to have prior singing experience. All you need to do is enjoy music! You will learn a lot of vocal techniques and will improve your singing while you are having fun! Although we were small in number, we had three successful performances last year. 

The chorus is open to men and women from the age of 18 and up.  We meet on the first Tuesday of the month and the second, third, and fourth Wednesdays from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Blazing Star Arts Center at 63 Carteret Avenue.  If you have any questions, please contact Marianne Wilson at
