Blue Heron Announces 2020-2021 Season – with your help!

While we have all been affected by these unprecedented months of loss and isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of us at Blue Heron have been buoyed by your messages of encouragement, compassion, and dedication. With gratitude, we are inspired to meet the challenge presented by the impossibility of the concert life we all love by creating novel ways to keep us singing, you listening, and all of us connected and uplifted through the power of music.

By renewing your subscription at last year’s level, you enable us to launch a 22nd Season full of activities both familiar and new.

The formats will be web-based this season due to performing restrictions and health concerns, but we will make a virtue of necessity and explore how we can add value to your experience:

  • Pre-recorded concerts will be introduced by expanded pre-concert talks that include visual illustrations and musical examples not possible at live concerts.
  • The web-based concerts themselves may also include illustrations and subtitles.
  • You may augment your subscription by participating in an Ockeghem Academy or enjoy new solo performances or interviews with Blue Heron musicians and special guests.
