Concert Calendar
The Vocal Area Network Concert Calendar focuses solely on vocal ensemble and choir performances around the New York area. This information is compiled from flyers, web sites and sources within the performing groups. We strive to make it as accurate as possible, but it's always a good idea to make a confirming phone call or web site visit.

Listings posted within the last week are indicated by New listing. Summer sings / open sings / choral read-throughs are indicated by dates in green. Notice, too, the new menu (to the left) and sharing tools (for each event).

To list your group's event here, use our new listing form. (If you prefer, just send us a note with complete, accurate information about your event.) There is no charge to be listed in the VAN Concert Calendar. To supplement your listing with a cost-effective VAN Ad banner ad, see our Advertising page.

Central City Chorus (Choir)

An evening of carols and motets in celebration of the holiday season. Weaving together music and poetry spanning several centuries as a meditation on the spirit of the season, the program features familiar favorites like Franz Biebl's Ave Maria, Morten Lauridsen's O magnum mysterium, Elizabeth Poston's Jesus Christ the apple tree, the 15th-century setting of Ther is no rose of swych virtu and Ralph Vaughan Williams's Wassail song, alongside rarely heard works like Zoltán Kodály's Adventi ének (a setting of the O antiphons), Herbert Howells's Long, long ago, William Walton's What cheer? and James Bassi's Quem pastores laudavere. The program also pairs popular carols by Alfred Burt with those of his grandniece, Abbie Burt Betinis, who has continued the family tradition—which began in 1922—of writing a new carol every Christmas since 2001. The festive program concludes on a joyful note with a setting of the popular carol We wish you a merry Christmas, looking ahead to ring in the New Year. The Chorus is also thrilled to welcome back Paul Hecht and Jennifer van Dyck as guest narrators in the recitation of prose and poetry reflecting upon the themes of Christmas and winter.
