The rumors are true, and at long last, we can tell you to save the date! VCS will premiere its first virtual concert TOGETHER, AS ONE — 7:30 pm, Saturday, November 21, 2020. And we would love for you to be there!
It’s been months of wondering, diving into a new virtual choral reality, learning to be our own Zoom masters, and still finding joy in the music. And we’d love for you to see and hear what we’ve been up to.
This concert, especially, revels in the joy of coming together even though we are all spread out. Because for so many of us, especially now, music isn’t just about singing perfect notes. It’s about coming together, being in a community, and creating it despite all the distance. As always, our artistic director, Mike Horanski has designed a lovely repertoire with pieces by Elaine Hagenberg, Jacob Narverud, and Dan Forrest. All are contemporary composers with the immense depth needed to reinterpret some beloved classics for the modern choral moment. You’re going to enjoy this immensely.
However, this being our first virtual concert with you, we do need you to do a couple of things.
First, if you’re not our mailing list, please subscribe here. This is a free event, but we want to know that you’re coming, and make sure there’s room for you on virtual concert night. Once you’re on the list, we’ll send you information on how to RSVP so we can expect you via Zoom on concert night.
Second – if you aren’t yet familiar with Zoom, or have not downloaded it, please do so. The Zoom app which sits on your computer or mobile device is available from Zoom.com or from your App Store for Zoom iCloud meetings. It only takes a minute or two to download it. You want to be all set up that evening to just click the link we send you, enter the concert, and sit back and enjoy.
It’s been ages. We miss you, and miss performing for you. We can’t wait. Please do join us!
