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.

Jessica Gould and Ensemble Aeneid (Soprano with instrumental ensemble)
"Carthage Conquer'd: Dreams of Tunis in the Baroque Imagination"
The capital of Tunisia was once the legendary city of Carthage. Its Queen Dido, loved then abandoned by Aeneas on his mission to found Rome, inspired countless musical masterworks from the baroque era to Berlioz. This concert alternates baroque cantatas and arias dedicated to the Carthaginian Queen with the Arabic form of improvisation known as Taksim, as two ensembles –- one baroque and the other North African -- share a stage, offering a new hearing of Dido the misused monarch and the site of Northern Africa as both exploited resource and object of fantasy in the Western European mythscape. Music of Cavalli, Couperin, DeVisée, Legrenzi, Montéclair and Purcell, in alternation with traditional Taksim improvisations.

Make Music New York (Mobile open sing)
"The Mobile Hallelujah"
Join Make Music New York to celebrate Handel's “Hallelujah Chorus” from Messiah, the oldest continuously-performed piece of classical music -– out of the concert hall and onto the city streets. Singers will descend on various popular locations across Manhattan and gather into vocal groups (soprano, alto, tenor and bass). Singers and their conductor will then synchronize their performance with the sound file played on a portable speaker, and make their way among the crowds. To the surprise of bystanders, a seemingly spontaneous outburst of the famous choral piece will unfold in their midst, while performers revel in the joy of creating a unique, full-throated version of the choral masterwork.
Schedule:
6:00-6:10 PM: Astor Place Plaza, East 8th Street between Lafayette Street and Cooper Square
