The Brattleboro Women's Chorus will perform their annual fall concerts, on Saturday, November 23 at 3:00 and 7:30 pm at Epsilon Spires (formerly First Baptist Church).
The Brattleboro Women’s Chorus will present their 24th annual fall concert titled "Love Changes Everything" on Saturday, November 23 at 3:00 pm and 7:30 pm at the newly named Epsilon Spires, formerly the First Baptist Church, on Main Street.
Director Becky Graber and the 100-plus member chorus will be joined by guest musicians Lisa McCormick with her ukulele orchestra and Cathy Martin on piano.
The theme of the concert music is love in its many forms. By happenstance or by grace, many of the songs are by women composers: the concert title song Love Changes Everything by Lisa McCormick; two by Ali Burns of Scotland; Lullabye by Cris Williamson; the irreverent If You Love Me by Malvina Reynolds; and Holly Near’s Change of Heart, which says, among other things, “There’s a change of heart any time you join the choir.”
Baby Boomer favorites include Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, All I Have to Do Is Dream, Billy Joel’s Lullabye, and a medley of Beatles tunes. And for the younger crowd, there is One Day by Matisyahu.
If you would like to join the BWC, please mark your calendars for our SPRING session! Rehearsals will start March 4 & 5, 2020. 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.
