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. Rehearsals are a mix of warm ups, moving our bodies and singing some beautiful & uplifting songs that will carry you through your week.

Rehearsal options this fall include:
Thursday mornings 10 - 11:30 am at the Brattleboro Music Center
Thursday evenings 6:30 - 8 pm at the Kiwanis shelter in Living Memorial Park (first 6 weeks only) and then at All Souls Church
Friday mornings from 10 - 11:15 am via Zoom
Read ALL THE DETAILS about the coming semester in Becky's letter to the chorus here. This includes our Covid policies (based on the venues we rehearse in), concert information and song choices. Please know (like so much else these days) that everything is subject to change.
The chosen 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! During Covid times, songs tend to be easy to learn and sing along to from week to week.
The fact that we have an online component enables us to reach out to anyone, no matter where they live, so be sure to invite your friends or family to sing with you!
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.
Our adult fee for the semester is a sliding scale of $85-$160 ($140 being the "true cost"), family pairs are $190 and students are $70. Financial aid is available so that chorus can be affordable to all.
