January 17: 1:00 – 2:30 pm on Zoom
Leaders of choral music from around the country will join us for a panel discussion. We will be inspired and challenged by them as they share the work they are doing, how they see the choral field changing and where they still see areas for improvement as we address issues of racism in choral music.
Panel Guests: Ms. Alysia Lee, Dr. Arianne Abela, Dr. Eugene Rogers

January 24: 1:00 – 2:00 on Zoom: Conversation with Dr. Emilie Amrein of The Choral Commons.
The Choral Commons aims to provide a space for choirs and conductors to envision innovative and equity-centered practice and to confront racism, poverty, ableism, LGBTQ discrimination, displacement, and much more. We will participate in an interactive webinar led by Dr. Amrein as we explore ways that VocalPoint can thrive into the future as our best self.

January 31: 1:00—3:00 Birthday Party in the MPR Parking Lot!
Join us between 1:00 – 3:00 in the MPR Parking lot for warm drinks, a hot fire, birthday treats from The Cookie Cart, and a chance for you to share some of your favorite VocalPoint memories. (All while staying safe.) We’ll have a Birthday Gift Wish List, but the gifts won’t be for us! We’re asking that you come with checks or cash in hand to donate to one of our past non-profit partners! (Or, if you’d prefer to give on-line, we’ll have “pledge slips” that you can fill out to let us know your on-line gifts! Please note we won’t be processing any credit card donations; you will be doing that on your own through the secure websites of the non-profits.) Check out the gift list here!
