The fall 2020 session of Chorus will begin on Thursdays from 10-11:30 am or from 7-8:30 pm beginning on September 3 via Zoom.
The Brattleboro Women’s Chorus will begin their fall session with open rehearsals on September 3 via Zoom. Participants will need to register beforehand to receive the Zoom link (TBA). Songs will reflect welcoming the ancestors, healing, and moving into the new and the now. This marks the Brattleboro Women's Chorus 25th Anniversary year and though we can't meet in person, we will be sure to make it memorable.
The first two rehearsals are open for anyone to check out whether Chorus is right for them with no obligation to join.
The Brattleboro Women’s Chorus welcomes anyone aged 10 and older who identifies as a woman or non-binary, and whose vocal range comfortably includes the A in the middle of the treble staff.
The Chorus has been under the direction of Becky Graber since 1996 and is unique in that much of the music, even multiple and complicated parts, is taught by ear. Written music is available on occasion, but practice recordings and word sheets are always provided to help with learning. Due to Covid-19 this year, we will be using all of the above plus zoom rehearsals and maybe videos of Becky posted on YouTube.
Two rehearsal options are offered and will begin on Thursday, September 3 from either 10-11:30 am or 7-8:30 pm via Zoom.
Can't make the first rehearsal? No problem! We accept new members through our second week of rehearsals. Singers may attend either or both rehearsals.
The chorus will be preparing for an online "concert" on Sunday, November 22. We welcomed nearly 200 people from around the country to our last online concert in May and it was LOVELY. Be sure to invite all your loved ones to come hear and sing with us. More info on our concerts can be found here.
This is our 25th ANNIVERSARY YEAR and with that come some (online) celebrations including online gatherings the 25th of every month, September-May that all chorus members have access to (some will have guest conductors). More about that can be found in Becky's welcome letter.
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.
Music is an eclectic mix from around the world that is spirited and spiritual. 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!
Our adult fee this semester is a sliding scale of $150-$80, family pairs are $190 and students are $70. Financial aid is available so that chorus can be affordable to all.
