What our singers say

Sherry Jacoby

Being a member of VRC Ensemble has been an incredible experience. Anthony's musical expertise and positive energy inspires me to reach new heights as a singer and performer.

Heather Harris

VRC Ensemble not only has allowed me the opportunity to sing fun and fantastic rock arrangements with a professional rock band, it has also blessed me with the chance to spend time with and work with so many talented and lovely people. Our brilliant director, Anthony Bastianon, draws the best from us, as a group, but also individually. He inspires us to push ourselves, and as a result, we really rock.

Caroline Craig

It's a joy to be part of VRC Ensemble. Anthony's professional approach to everything is a huge reason for that: the repertoire he sets, his arrangements, and rehearsals that push us toward precision and better vocal technique each week. We work, and it's such fun. I leave each week on a bit of a high! It's been a thrill to experience it all come together at concert time when we share the stage with professional rock musicians.

Kim Stone

I have learned so much about how to properly use my singing voice, whether it be in a choral, duet, or solo setting through the professionalism and leadership of our Artistic Director Anthony Bastianon and our founder, Cheryl Bower. The musical and choral arrangements are stellar and have covered many genres, including pop and rock songs from different eras.

Justin Thouin

VRC is so different from anything else I do in my life, and the experience has been energizing, challenging, and a lot of fun! The dedication and preparation by Anthony and Cheryl is evident at every practice and event and they have put together a program that is first class and phenomenal!
