The spring session of Chorus begins on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 pm beginning on March 1 at All Souls Church, or on Thursdays from 10 am - noon beginning on March 2 at Centre Congregational Church.
The first two rehearsals are open to anyone who would like to come and check out chorus for the first time with no obligation to join. Be sure to spread the word and bring your friends!
Are you looking for healthful ways to feel good? Singing has been shown to do just that! And the Brattleboro Women's Chorus offers any woman or girl age 10 and over the opportunity to create music in a community of other singers.
All women and girls over 10 are welcome, and there are no auditions. Reading music is optional since music is taught by rote and by ear with part recordings available. Music is an eclectic mix from around the world that is spirited and spiritual. This Spring's theme is "On Wings of Song" or "Sing My Sister, Sing," with songs about the power of voices raised in song. There is also a thread of Love and Hope that weaves through these songs. To get a sense of the varied music we sing, here is a list of all the songs we've sung in our concerts or you can listen to a few sample tracks from our CD!
Most of the music is taught by ear, recordings by singing part are always made available, and there are no auditions. The intent is to make singing accessible to anyone regardless of experience.
While many singers enjoy performing, some prefer to sing weekly and not participate in the concert at the end of the session (Mother's Day, May 14 at the Latchis Theatre). The fee is $110 for adults, family pairs are $170 and students are $60. Financial aid is available so that chorus can be affordable to all (see below).
