BRATTLEBORO - After eighteen years of rehearsals only on Wednesday evenings, the Brattleboro Women’s Chorus announces that they are adding a second time on Thursday mornings from 10 a.m. to noon at the Centre Congregational Church on Main St. in Brattleboro in addition to Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. at All Souls Church in West Brattleboro. The 19th fall session begins on Sept. 3 and 4.
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. The fee is $110, and financial aid is available to make Chorus accessible to all women.
