After eighteen years of rehearsals only on Wednesday nights at 7:00, the Brattleboro Women’s Chorus is adding a second time on Thursday mornings from 10:00-12:00 at the Centre Congregational Church on Main St. in Brattleboro. The nineteenth fall session begins on September 3rd and 4th. If you have never sung with the Chorus, join them for the first rehearsal to see what you think. All women and girls over 10 are welcome, and there are no auditions. Songs are learned mostly by rote and by ear, and music is an eclectic mix that is spirited and spiritual. As founder/director Becky Graber says, they are “good songs to live with” over the course of the session and beyond.
The Chorus presents two concerts the week and weekend before Thanksgiving, and while many singers enjoy performing, some prefer to sing weekly and not participate in the concert. There is a participation fee, and financial aid is available to make Chorus accessible to all women.
