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.

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.

"Can We Talk… About Our Home"
They are our personal ‘castles,’ are they not? -- and then we discover the truth about lead in paint, about asbestos in insulation, about DDT in pesticides . . .about rising water levels and flooding issues caused by human choices. And we make changes to protect the health of ourselves, our families, and our home. Ember is proud to have commissioned two selections that make very clear the importance of listening expansively to the voice of our planet. One of these, Listen, by NY composer Robert Paterson, scored for singers and chamber orchestra, will be the centerpiece of the concerts we call Our Home.
