The spring session of Chorus begins on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 pm beginning on February 28 at All Souls Church, or on Thursdays from 10 am - noon beginning on March 1 at Centre Congregational Church.
The first two rehearsals are open to anyone who would like to come and check out chorus for the first time with no obligation to join. Be sure to spread the word and bring your friends!
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.
All women and girls over 10 are welcome, and there are no auditions. Reading music is optional since music is taught by rote and by ear with part recordings available. The intent is to make singing accessible to anyone regardless of experience.
Music is an eclectic mix from around the world that is spirited and spiritual with a theme usually announced closer to when rehearsals begin. 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!
The spring repertoire will feature Vermont songs – songs about Vermont and ones by Vermont composers and arrangers, including several by the chorus director, Becky Graber.
Some of the songs will be performed by a group from the chorus at the Sister Singers Festival this June in Michigan, where they will sing and connect with more than twenty other women’s choruses.
While many singers enjoy performing, some prefer to sing weekly and not participate in the concert at the end of the session (May 12 & 13). The fee is $120 for adults, family pairs are $190 and students are $70. Financial aid is available so that chorus can be affordable to all. Our Financial Aid application can be found here and can be submitted with a $20 deposit by the date listed on the application.
