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.

"Wien IV: The Second Viennese School"
A program showcasing the notorious, controversial, yet brilliant composers of the Second Viennese School. Alban Berg's lush romanticism is on full display in his seven early songs and Piano Sonata Op. 1. Arnold Schoenberg is represented by two of the earliest atonal masterpieces: his three piano pieces Opus 11 and the monumental song cycle The Book of the Hanging Garden. The aphoristic five songs of Op. 3 and revolutionary Piano Variations Op. 27 perfectly capture Anton Webern's cool, intellectual, yet highly engaging style.

Works of Benedetto Marcello, Francesco Durante, Barbara Strozzi, Salomone Rossi, and unaccompanied Hebrew chants attest to a lively conversation, as do selections from the 1759 Hebrew libretto of Handel's Esther, commissioned by the Jewish community of Amsterdam in the year of the composer's death.
