2022 Christmas Season

VOCE is looking forward to a wonderful 2022 Christmas concert season! This year is the 20th anniversary of VOCE’s founding by the late Sandy Beam. We will title this year’s performance The 20th Anniversary Sandy Beam Christmas Concert to celebrate this milestone. Lance Newman and Adam Rudisill return as our music directors after our very well received “Broadway Our Way” concerts this past summer.

VOCE holds rehearsals every Monday evening from 7-9 PM at Dobson First Baptist Church. The first rehearsal is September 12 and will begin with social hour and refreshments from 6-7PM. We plan to have concerts on December 5 and 12, and we may also arrange other ensemble performances during the Christmas Season. If you have not sung with VOCE in the past, please contact Lance or Adam to set up an audition. If you sang with Sandy Beam, come join us and celebrate Sandy!

The VOCE Board of Directors has the duty and responsibility to provide a safe and healthy environment for our rehearsals and performances. We request that all singers and musicians be fully vaccinated for COVID and influenza. When case rates are high in Surry County and social distancing is not feasible, we sing wearing masks; we can provide special singers’ masks to those who need one.

News from VOCE

VOCE is so anxious to begin another season of exciting performances for you. However, due to the current increase in COVID outbreaks and associated difficulties, our Board has reluctantly decided to postpone until January a decision about resuming rehearsals and offering concerts. It is our desire to protect our singers, our supporters, and our dedicated concert goers that has prompted this decision.

Please stay well! We look forward to future in-person performances when safe for us all!  And maybe a surprise on Facebook and our website!
