West Village Chorale 2020-21 Season
Spring Concert: If I Can Sing
Sunday, June 13th, 2021 at 5:00PM on Zoom
“If I can sing, I still am free.” These words of Sara Teasdale (set by Elaine Hagenberg) provide the title for the West Village Chorale’s spring 2021 concert—our first performance together in over a year!
Recorded in the acoustically magnificent Meeting Room of our beloved home at Judson Memorial Church, the concert features the WVC’s usual variety of repertoire—from Bach to the Beatles, and from the 16th-century polyphony of William Byrd to the 20th century spirituals of Glenn Burleigh, among many others.
A long-awaited return to singing as one, this program is a testament to the power of the human voice and our resilience in the face of unprecedented isolation. Joining the WVC are cellist David Blasher and, as always, our beloved pianist Elena Belli.
We hope you can be with us via Zoom to experience this powerful and poignant performance!
