The Brattleboro Women’s Chorus welcomes new members to join us as we kick off our 27th year on September 8. Come join in the singing either virtually on Friday mornings or in-person on Thursday mornings or evenings. Our first two rehearsals are open to new singers to come and check out the chorus to see if it is a good fit for them (provided they email us in advance). Advance registration is required for all singers.
In-person rehearsals are held Thursday mornings at the Brattleboro Music Center from 10 – 11:30 am and Thursday evenings at the Kiwanis Shelter from 6:30 – 8:00 pm (moving indoors to All Souls Church as the weather cools). Proof of vaccination and singer’s masks with a filter or N95/KN95 masks are required for in-person rehearsals this fall.
Zoom rehearsals will take place weekly on Fridays from 10:30 – 11:45 am. We hope to conclude our season with concerts at the Brattleboro Music Center in November, but you do not have to plan to participate in the concerts to sing in chorus.
Musical Director Becky Graber chooses an eclectic mix of music from around the world that is spirited, uplifting and easy to learn. The chorus learns through the oral tradition. Word sheets, part recordings and zoom videos are available to practice with between rehearsals.
The Chorus welcomes anyone ages 10 and up who identifies as a woman or non-binary, and whose vocal range comfortably includes the A in the middle of the treble staff.
For those who decide to join, the cost for the fall session is a sliding scale of $85-$160 per adult with discounts for students and family pairs. Financial aid is available.
