Welcome to the West Village Chorale

Join the WVC for a Virtual Oktoberfest!oktoberfest2020

Our popular Oktoberfest fundraiser is back, this year (like everything else) on Zoom!

Once again we’ll be offering pairings of seasonal beer and music, with a 2020 twist—from the comfort of our homes!

For this BYOB (and BYO) event, our dear friend and sommelier Patrick Watson of Brooklyn’s Smith and Vine has provided a list of beers (and a cider) we can easily find in our own neighborhoods!

The evening’s libations will be accompanied by a flight of songs offered by our wonderful performers—including bass Justin Beck, sopranos Sarah Blaze, Chelsea Friedlander, and Laura Green, and tenors Amine Hachem and Spencer Viator.

And of course, it wouldn’t be an Oktoberfest without some drinking songs from the audience…so we’ll join in from wherever in the world we are. PROST!

Date: Wednesday, October 28th

Time: 7:00 pm ~ 8:30pm

Location: Your place!  Join us via Zoom

Registration: $20 per person (or $30 for “pod” pricing)

Sign up here (via Eventbrite)

Thank you, Summer Singers!

Summer Sing Banner

A Summer Unlike Any Other

Thank you to everyone who “joined” us for our weekly Virtual Summer Sings this summer!  Of course it was no substitute for being together and singing (and snacking) communally at Judson, but the Sings nonetheless allowed us to keep some choral music in our lives in a strange and challenging summer.

Thanks also for your generous donations to fund the series, and your suggestions as our format evolved.  We hope to be able to offer additional “Cyber Sings” over the course of this coming season (including our “Messiah Sing” this December!).

If you missed any of our sings, recordings are available on our YouTube channel!

Ordering Online?  Support the WVC While You Shop

If you are shopping online at Amazon.com this spring/summer, you can support the WVC at the same time!

Through its AmazonSmile program, the online retailer allows you to chose a charity to support; 0.5% of the value of your eligible purchases will then be donated to the charitable organization of your choice.  We’ve been fortunate to have participated in this program for several years now, and the numbers add up!

To get started, instead of going to www.amazon.com, go to https://smile.amazon.com.  When you see “Select Charity,” look for the West Village Chorale Inc”!  From there, you can shop as you normally would, and know that a portion of your spending will help support the WVC!
