Concert Calendar
The Vocal Area Network Concert Calendar focuses solely on vocal ensemble and choir performances around the New York area. 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--especially now, when many concerts are being rescheduled or cancelled due to the coronavirus issue.

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.
