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.

The Cecilia Chorus of New York (Chorus with orchestra and soloists)
"The Ballad of the Brown King & Messiah"
The Cecilia Chorus of New York returns to live music-making with two firsts, programmed and conducted by Music Director Mark Shapiro. Sixty-seven years after its premiere, American composer Margaret Bonds's The Ballad of The Brown King gets a historic first-ever hearing in Carnegie Hall. The nine-movement cantata sets words by Langston Hughes evoking the African King Balthazar in a beautiful telling of the Nativity story.

Our Carnegie Hall Messiah is a New York tradition. This year we condense Handel's 150-minute epic into a crisp 50-minute "vest-pocket" version ¬— suspenseful, exhilarating and perfect for the whole family. Mozart's orchestration infuses Handel's Baroque sound-world with classical elegance.

Choral singers welcome. No auditions. Vocal scores provided.

TENET Vocal Artists (Vocal ensemble)
"Heinrich Schütz @ 350"
Heinrich Schütz was known as the most important German composer preceding Bach. His music influenced many other composers, and he blended Germanic and Italianate styles in his works. TENET is keeping it real by reprogramming Schütz's beloved Musikalische Exequien, one of his best known and most beautiful works for the Lenten season, making it a perfect tribute to honor of the 350th anniversary of his death.
