Welcome to the West Village Chorale


Summer Sings are Here—come sing with us!

WVCSummerSing

 

Our Summer Sings are well underway, with some Bach, Brahms, Poulenc and Vivaldi under our belt…and much more to come!

 

Join us each Monday, from now through August 19th, and sing some choral favorites with scores(!) of other singers from all around the area, and a different conductor each week!

 

For your $15 admission ($10 student with ID), we’ll lend you a copy of the evening’s music, and provide the pianist and some light refreshments, as well as a chance to meet and work with some of the city’s most well-known conductors.

“Songs and Carols from the North”

Sunday , December 15, 2019

For our annual program, this year the Chorale ventures to the north to sing music from Canada, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, the UK, and the US. Featured composers include Howells, Hrušovský, Jansons, Miskinis, Pärt, Paulus, Pearsall, Rachmaninoff, and Tavener.  Join us for this beloved holiday tradition!


Rachmaninoff’s
All-Night Vigil

Sunday, March 15, 2020

Arguably one of the most stunningly beautiful choral pieces ever written, the Rachmaninoff’s sacred magnum opus comes to life in the magnificent acoustic of Judson Memorial Church.

 

“American Voices, Volume 2—Seeing 20/20”

Sunday, May 17, 2020

Help the WVC “Rise Up”!

We’re excited to announce we’ve recently launched our first GoFundMe Campaign to fund a new set of risers for our performances.  We’ve happily welcomed some wonderful new members to our ranks over the past several years…to the point that our current risers, lovingly handmade by a long-time member, are no longer sufficient to support us (literally!).  Help us rise to the occasion by chipping in—no amount is too small and all donations are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your continued support and generosity!
