Sub Rosa: Secrets Revealed



Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center (14 Castle Street Great Barrington, MA 01230)

What might happen if Robert Langdon, acclaimed professor of Symbology at Harvard University (and fictional hero of Dan Brown’s best-selling novels, including The Da Vinci Code), were enlisted to explore hidden symbols, secret codes, and long-forgotten historical connections buried in manuscripts of choral music over the centuries? Join Skylark to find out...

Featuring video introductions by author Dan Brown and stunning new music by Gregory W. Brown, Skylark will rehearse and debut this program in residence at Phillips Exeter Academy.

Join us for a pre-concert talk at 5:15PM.


As we prepare to return to live performances, our top priority is the safety of our community, as well as our audiences, performers and staff.


In consultation with medical and public health experts and at the request of many of our artists, Skylark will be implementing a mandatory vaccine policy for audiences. Beginning this Fall, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to performance, as well as matching photo ID, will be required upon arrival at Skylark concerts. Vaccinations will also be required for staff, patron-facing volunteers, and all Skylark artists. Skylark artists will also be taking COVID tests before and during our projects.


All patrons and staff will be required to wear masks. Masks must cover the nose and mouth and must be worn during the duration of the performance. Depending on local guidelines and virus prevalence, some or all Skylark artists may also be masked for performances. If Skylark chooses to perform unmasked, the group will ensure at least 10 feet of distance from the first row of the audience.


To maintain safe distancing, we anticipate only filling our venues to ~50% of capacity. Capacity limits for each concert will be made based on local virus prevalance and public health guidance nearer to the time of the performance.


All ticket reservations must be made in advance. Check-in at the venue will be contactless. While we love mingling and meeting with our audiences before and after concerts, we do not anticipate having post-concert meet and greets this year.


Skylark will make a concert video of each concert available online for subscribers or ticket buyers who choose not to attend in person. The online release date is expected to be 7-14 days after the live performance.


If Skylark is forced to cancel any concerts in our October or December concert series, subscribers will receive a FREE CD recording of the Skylark album for the program.

Skylark will continue to closely monitor local, state and federal policies regarding indoor activities, and will plan our safety protocols accordingly. Specific health and safety protocols are subject to change and will be clearly communicated to ticket holders in advance of performances.
