The Brattleboro Women’s Chorus will hold its 25th fall semester rehearsals online via Zoom. There will be morning or evening meeting times on Thursdays beginning September 3 for twelve weeks, with the choice of either 10:00-11:30 am or 7:00-8:30 pm. As always, singers who wish to try Chorus out are welcome to do so on September 3 and 10, but registration is necessary to receive a Zoom link. The Chorus is open to 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.
Themes throughout the 12 weeks will be welcoming the ancestors, healing, and moving into the new and the now. A Zoom final concert will be held on November 22.
Founder-director Becky Graber has created backing tracks to sing along with, and she will offer practice tracks and occasional YouTube tutorials. She says, “We’ll sing wonderful songs for you to take away with you into your daily life, and I’ll offer ways you can enjoy exploring your own singing. There’s a lot Zoom can’t do, but we’ll find ways to enjoy making music together in our own spaces.” Plus you can now sing with anyone you wish to invite!
The Chorus offers a new sliding scale option in the fee structure for this fall, as well as family and student rates and financial aid. Registration and payment may be done online or by regular mail. Visit BrattleboroWomensChorus.org for more information.
