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 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.

Choral Chameleon (Vocal ensemble)
"CEP--Drawing the Target Around the Arrow"
CEP is singer/songwriter/producer Caroline Elizabeth Polachek (Chairlift, Ramona Lisa). Her first instrumental release, Drawing the Target Around the Arrow, is a collection of pieces made only using sine waves. Used for sonar systems and hearing tests alike, sine waves are also called "pure tones" or "single-frequency waves". In CEP's hands, these simple sounds are phased and woven into sonic textiles that range from visceral drones to suspended melodies modeled on bird song. Both medicinal and utilitarian, the collection of pieces revolves around the idea that the simple materials at hand are often all you need. ​Choral Chameleon's Artistic Director Vince Peterson has collaborated with Caroline to create live vocal arrangements especially for this presentation.
