List Your Online Events!

The Choral Arts New England chorus calendar is now listing online events (webcasts, virtual concerts, webinars) that are of interest to the choral community. To list your event, use the online form and put the event link in the "Location/Address" box; you may leave the city/state/Zip fields blank. Events must take place at a certain date and time (since this is a calendar), but need not list a physical location.

Singing in a choir is such a moving experience—just the noise that you make, and the camaraderie. There's so much beautiful choral music around, and just being part of a group of people who love to do that gives you that fire in your belly to want to do more.
 —Elton John, 2019
