Near North Voices’ Messiah is SOLD OUT

Dear NNV Fans and Audience Folks: Our Messiah concert has sold out, 3 weeks before the concert! This is unheard of for a classical music event in North Bay. As a result, we will not be selling tickets at the door. We may have a few (very few!) tickets come back on return from individuals who find they cannot attend, and we can put people on a waiting list for those. Our apologies to anyone who has missed out on this event. We look forward to welcoming you at our next concert, “Near North Voices: Up Close and Personal” on Saturday, April 6.

Near North Voices sends a team to Carnegie Hall

A contingent of singers from Near North Voices travelled to New York City to participate in the performance of Dan Forrest’s Requiem for the Living under conductor Martha Banghart at Carnegie Hall. Near North Voices performed this work in a version for choir with organ and chamber orchestra in our last season, and we were invited by American conductor Martha Banghart to join with her choir and others for a performance of the work with a full professional orchestra at Carnegie Hall. Due to work and school commitments, approximately half of last seasons’ choristers were able to undertake the trip. The singers participated in several days of rehearsals, and performed the concert with full orchestra under the lights of that famous concert hall on March 19.
