About this event

Our Artistic Director, Bryson Mortensen, offers his thoughts on this concert.

“Unfortunately, our focus as a community was so focused on what to do in our newly isolated worlds, that many of us missed the 250th Anniversary of Beethoven's birth in December. Now that we have our wits about it, we decided, at the very least, that we could offer him a belated birthday celebration! Our concert consists of selections from Beethoven’s Mass in C Major, Joyful, Joyful, Jesu dulcis memoria, Heilge Nach and God’s Glory in Nature. "

We are especially excited that this virtual concert includes actual orchestral accompaniment, provided by some of the great string players in the area, as well as our talented Associate Artistic Director Diane Drury playing the Organ. We hope that you will join us to celebrate our last virtual concert of the season!

The concert will be free. We ask you to consider offering a donation to VCS. Since VCS is a non-profit, IRS Code 501 (c) 3 organization and donations are tax deductible as IRS permits.

Organizer The Virginia Choral Society

Organizer of Virginia Choral Society's Happy Belated Birthday, Beethoven – Virtual

The Virginia Choral Society is a community-based choral group of 80-100 voices which currently presents three major concert series each year; one series in the fall, one during the winter holiday season, and one in the spring. VCS sings a wide variety of repertoire; at any given concert you might hear Broadway choruses, a large choral-orchestral work, jazz standards, folk songs, traditional favorites, or a commissioned work from a local composer.

VCS is one of the oldest continuously performing choral organizations in Virginia having been organized in 1931.  This 2018-2019 concert year is our 88th. VCS is home-based in Newport News, Virginia and performs throughout the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.
