This fall, the Brattleboro Women's Chorus will perform their 22nd annual fall concert entitled "Singing in the Light of Love" on Saturday, November 18 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 4 pm at the First Baptist Church.
More than 80 women directed by founder/conductor Becky Graber will perform songs of love and songs about music. The talented Cathy Martin will accompany on piano, and the local Ukulele Orchestra led by Lisa McCormick will join on several songs, including a new song by Libby Roderick, “Got to Love.”
Other selections, from a variety of genres, include a gospel medley of Rollo Dilworth’s arrangement of the spiritual “Shine on Me” paired with Russell Robinson’s composition, “Standing in the Light of Love;” “Plovi Barko” from Croatia; “Amovolovolo” from South Africa; “This Ancient Love” by Carolyn McDade; “Kinder,” as created and sung by the group Copper Wimmin; and the Wailin’ Jennys’ version of “Storm Comin’.”
Concerts are Saturday, November 18 at 7:30 and Sunday, November 19 at 4:00, both at the First Baptist Church on Main Street.
