West Village Chorale 2019-2020 Season

The West Village Chorale is pleased to announce our 2019-2020 concert season, which includes a variety of new gems and beloved classics.

Unless otherwise indicated, all concerts will be held at our West Village home, Judson Memorial Church, 55 Washington Square South (at Thompson Street) Map

 

Postponed: Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil

We hope to present this concert later this year, after the COVID-19 health crisis has passed and we can gather in larger (harmonious) numbers again!

The All-Night Vigil (Op. 37) of Sergei Rachmaninoff is widely acknowledged to be one of the most stunning works in choral music.

Composed and premiered in 1915, Rachmaninoff’s masterpiece includes settings of traditional liturgical chants of the Russian Orthodox church, as well as original music of unforgettable beauty.

Join the West Village Chorale as we offer this magnum opus—alternately powerful and gentle, mysterious and exultant—in the magnificent acoustic of our home at Judson Memorial Church.
