Don’t miss this opportunity to “tune up” for the coming season and learn some valuable new skills!
Thank you, Summer Singers!
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!
