Postponed: Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil
A message from our Artistic Director, Colin Britt, D.M.A:
Dear West Village Chorale friends and family,
After much discussion with the Board of Directors, we have together made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone Sunday’s performance of the Rachmaninoff “All-Night Vigil” to a future date.
While making this decision was incredibly painful, we believe that postponing the program until after the COVID-19 pandemic has been halted is absolutely the correct course of action to protect our singers and audience members.
We have worked tremendously hard on this program and look forward to presenting it to you later this year, at a date to be determined following the current health crisis. In the meantime, we are offering our current ticket holders three options:
1) You may request a full refund.
2) You may transfer your ticket to a new performance, either of the Rachmaninoff or another future concert.
3) You may very generously choose to offer your ticket expense as a tax-deductible donation to the Chorale.
If you are a ticketholder to Sunday’s concert, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know which of these options will work best for you.
Whichever of these options you select, we continue to be profoundly grateful for your support and patronage, and we look forward to sharing our voices with you soon.
Please stay safe and healthy, and know that despite our new reality of social distancing, none of us are alone. Our choral community is strong and will emerge from this crisis stronger than ever.
With love and thanks,
Colin Britt and the Board and Singers of the West Village Chorale

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!
