BRATTLEBORO -- The Blanche Moyse Chorale, an affiliate of the Brattleboro Music Center, is now holding auditions for experienced choral singers in all vocal sections.

The Chorale is now embarking on an ambitious project to perform J.S. Bach’s Mass in B-minor in three late-April concerts in Bellows Falls, Brattleboro and New York City. Rehearsals begin on Sunday, Nov. 11. Interested singers should call either Chorale representative Calvin Farwell (802-257-0496) for more information or Chorale Director Mary Westbrook-Geha (617-216-2818) to schedule an audition.

The Chorale, founded in 1978, is a chamber chorus of about 30 voices, who strive to attain the high level of musical artistry exemplified by its original director, Blanche Moyse.

Although based in the Brattleboro area, the Chorale includes singers from the wider tri-state region and beyond. Weekly rehearsals are held on Sunday evenings at the Putney School in Putney.
