2023 Spring Concert
J.S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor (BWV 232)
Sunday, May 21, 2023

For our spring concert, WVC Artistic Director Colin Britt leads our singers and full orchestra in performing this monumental piece, widely acknowledged to be the culmination of Bach’s prolific career and one of the most important in the western choral canon.

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!
