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.

"Let 'Em Eat Cake"
After the resounding success of their 1931 hit, Of Thee I Sing, the Gershwins re-teamed with librettists George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind for this madcap and blisteringly dark sequel.

But never mind all that –- Cake is a sparkling gem filled with wonderful Gershwin tunes, and it hasn't been heard in NYC since 1987!

"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.

RenChorNY (Chamber choir)
"A Tudor Christmas with RenChorNY"
Before his 1534 break with Rome, and the 1536-9 dissolution and plundering of monasteries, Henry VIII employed the great Robert Fayrfax whose florid festal Christmas Mass Tecum Principium was copied in four manuscripts, which miraculously survived the violence. RenChorNY returns to this masterpiece, along with seasonal Sarum Chant and works by Byrd.
