We’re BURSTING to share the news
of our 2021 – 2022 concert season!
The Virginia Choral Society is back with a bang! We are beyond excited to be returning to in-person rehearsals as preparations begin for our 2021-2022 season. So excited, in fact, that each concert will include a variety of fun, upbeat songs that celebrate singing together!
Our fall concert, “Things That Go Bump in the Night” includes all sorts of songs about the night. Some describe the peace of nighttime, while others explore the scarier side of the evening hours, like “The Monster Mash” and “Little Shop of Horrors.” We hope you’ll come get spooky with us this October!
Our December concert, “Holy Light” will enchant and delight you with songs to welcome the season, including a collection of favorite carols such as “What Child is This,” “Bring a Torch, Jeannette Isabella,” and “Go, Tell it on the Mountain.” We know there’s nothing like hearing those classic carols to kick off the holidays, and we’re here to deliver!
Our final concert in May will include a performance of Kim André Arnesen’s Magnificat, the very piece we were planning to perform in May of 2020, just before our rehearsals got shut down. We are excited to bring this piece back this year as a reminder of our perseverance and tenacity over the past 18 months, overcoming many obstacles in order to produce great choral music as we looked ahead to brighter days.
But wait… there’s more! This year, we are also excited to introduce a short Cabaret concert to be performed in February. The concert will include a few numbers by the entire ensemble, but will also include solos, duets, and trios by individual members of VCS.
We would be honored to have you join us this year as we celebrate singing together once again!
