From Our Director

Have it your way!

We recognize that some of you may still feel uncomfortable attending a live concert even when the audience is fully vaccinated and wearing masks. We respect your concerns and therefore have arranged to have our first concert recorded in front of a live audience. Recording will be done with five separate cameras and our video and audio editors will be working round the clock to have the video ready for viewing by April 20.

How it Works

Simply click the Buy Virtual Tickets button above to complete your order. We will promptly send you a link with a user name and password that will enable anyone in your household to access the video. Then, starting at 7:30 PM CT on April 20, you can enjoy this wonderful music right in the comfort and safety of your own home. You can also view and re-view the concert as many times as you’d like through the end of the year.

What’s Different This Time?

From the Artistic Director

Throughout all of history we humans have found ways to write and sing about our lives, our loves, passions, jealousies and our follies. Wine, Women, Men, and Song, what could possibly go wro… is our way of singing about these universal themes, from grief to joy and everything between.

Our concert features old Irish drinking songs, a drinking song by Verdi, romantic lyrics by Shakespeare set by three different composers over 500 years, a spoof of Shakespeare from a recent Broadway show featuring “Will” as a confirmed narcissist, recent songs by Pentatonix, Sly and the Family Stone and a mind-boggling array of popular “Love Hooks” all compressed into a single song, guaranteed to trigger memories of love for everyone.

Your Safety

Though we take the performance of music extremely seriously, we have always presented our programs in a relaxed manner, enjoying ourselves and our audiences in the process. We encourage you to remember the fun you have had with us in the past, tell your friends, and come have fun with us in person!

We are fully committed to the health and safety of our audiences, artists, technicians, administrative staff and all of the communities we serve throughout each season. All of our artists are fully vaccinated. Our first two rehearsals were done virtually with live rehearsals starting January 31st. We continue to rehearse wearing masks in a large rehearsal space. Each singer, director and accompanist must take a rapid test prior to each rehearsal and concert. Although there are still many unknowns, as of now we will require all concertgoers to provide proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test within 72 hours of the concert. In addition, regarless of vaccination status, all concertgoers and other personnel will be required to wear masks while inside the concert venue.
