The Vero Beach Choral Society will premiere a concert entitled A Little Night Music on Sunday, April 24, 2022, at 4pm in the sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church at 520 Royal Palm Boulevard in Vero Beach. Admission is free; the suggested donation is $10.
This performance will be the first concert offered solely by the Vero Beach Choral Society in over two years. Previously, members of the group collaborated with the Chancel Choir at First Presbyterian Church in December 2021 to present Cesar Franck’s Mass in A Major. The April concert will feature musical selections that parallel in relationship to darkness, and the soul’s transcendence into light. Audience members can expect a variety of music ranging from classical favorites and 20th century musical theatre to contemporary choral literature.
The Choral Society will premiere this concert in their new home, along with their newly appointed Musical Director, Dr. Jacob Craig. Dr. Craig is the Director of Music and Arts at First Presbyterian Church of Vero Beach. Since his appointment began in September, the group has moved to First Presbyterian. As a bonus, the Choral Society will also have the ability to utilize the church’s award-winning Youth Symphonic Orchestra for accompaniment in special performances.
The Vero Beach Choral Society has been making beautiful choral music and thrilling audiences since its formation in 1984. It is an auditioned, community-based, and intergenerational ensemble that performs choral art music from the Renaissance through the 21st century. From concerts in Europe to the prestigious Carnegie Hall, the VBCS has continued to grow and outperform itself, as it remains committed to making a difference through its music. The Choral Society tagline encapsulates the reason for its very existence: enriching the community with music, education and inspiration.
