On September 19, 2015 RVCA held its second biennial fundraising event, the Joy of Singing Benefit Celebration. 250 patrons attended for an evening of singing, desserts, and a silent auction.
The 2015-2016 season included several exciting concerts. Our holiday concert included a collaboration with Men of Worth, a duo of two fabulous performers, Scotsman Donnie Macdonald and Irishman James Keigher. We joined forces with church choirs from throughout the Rogue Valley for a weekend of singing together with the renowned conductor Donald Brinegar. And we were thrilled to perform Joseph Julian Gonzalez’ choral masterpiece Misa Azteca, an eight movement work written in Spanish, Latin and Nahuatl (Aztec). Mr. Gonzalez came from his home in Mexico to attend the performance and give a pre-concert talk about the inspiration for his composition.
