This fall, the Brattleboro Women's Chorus will perform their annual spring concerts, titled "Keep Hope Alive" on Saturday, November 17 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, November 18, 2017 at 4 pm at the First Baptist Church.
The Brattleboro Women’s Chorus will present their annual fall concerts, “Keep Hope Alive,” on November 17 and 18 at The Brick Church (formerly the Baptist Church). Joining the eighty women and director Becky Graber will be Cathy Martin on piano, Julian McBrowne on bass, and Lisa McCormick on guitar and with her ukulele orchestra.
Several songs will feature arrangements by local musicians – Andy Davis’s four-part arrangement of “Let the Life I’ve Lived” and Peter Amidon’s “Crossing the Bar.” Graber arranged the wondrous song by India Arie, “I Am Light.” There will be songs that were learned by the nineteen chorus members who attended the Sister Singers Festival in Michigan last summer, including “With Great Love,” “Stand in That River,” and “Walk My Own Revolution.” And the title song, “Keep Hope Alive” by Ysaye Barnwell promises to be a grand finale with ukuleles, bass, singers, and audience all involved.
If you would like to join the BWC, please mark your calendars for our SPRING session! Rehearsals will start in March 2019. Read more about joining here!
We also offer or host other events that are open to the public, from concerts to our annual bake sale at the Welcome Center.
The Brattleboro Women’s Chorus presents concerts twice a year, the weekend before Thanksgiving and Mother's Day weekend. Concerts consist of songs from various traditions and are mixed in with readings and poetry to fit the "theme." Local musicians also accompany the chorus.
