If you know a VCS singer, you may have heard this past Sunday night was another first for the choir. The first of our individual recordings were due for our virtual concert scheduled for November.
As with all firsts, there wasn’t a playbook at times, our singers had their fair share of singing in a strange new online land. And yet, everyone came to the experiment a good sport, willing to try. It’s a testament to how lovely the music is, even if we’re singing it without the benefit of our community physically around us, and how much the music and the arts mean to us collectively during the pandemic. After all, other than baking ourselves into a yeast shortage, where would we all be without the arts and music and Netflix binges and beloved book re-reads to keep us going these last six months?
It takes two to keep the arts going. It takes us to sing, and you to appreciate and enjoy. Because there is no singing, no show, without an audience. So THANK YOU, for being such a great audience through the years, and especially this unusual season where we are reaching out to touch voices virtually. We couldn’t have done it without your support, especially as Friends of VCS.
Not part of our Friend of VCS program yet? It’s not too late to join. Our campaign goes through the end of this month. We have some great benefits, including the special pre-show conversation with our Artistic Director, Mike Horanski, plus benefits with all our Friends of VCS partners – Bards Alley bookstore, Caffe Amouri, Cocoa Vienna, and Nothing Bundt Cakes (Vienna). And as always, the more friends, the merrier!
