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.

Daniel McGrew (Tenor and piano)
"Young Concert Artists presents Daniel McGrew"
“These songs by Brahms, Beamish, Debussy, Britten and others--songs from across cultures, time and space--are windows onto a very present experience: we hear in them a probing voice, an 'I' in search of itself. Plagued by love and loss, gripped with desire, driven by faith and haunted by doubt, these songs are every bit as ambiguous and ambivalent as we are. And if they do not answer our questions or teach us precisely who and how to be, they do something as least as valuable in making us less alone.” -- Daniel McGrew
