CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Tuesday, September
BRATTLEBORO The Soubrette Jazz Choir: Women's vocal ensemble led by Anna Patton that works up intricate vocal arrangements of Swing, Jazz, and Blues, as well as songs in those idioms by contemporary composers. A Soubrette is an opera or musical theater term for the non-leading lady - usually more worldly, instrumental in the plot intrigue, and funnier than the lead. We tend to sing these kinds of songs. Each semester we work up a short set of songs, culminating in two or three performances. We work on blend and precision in close harmonies, syncopated rhythms, and understanding chord progressions. We work mostly from written music and occasionally by ear. Recorded practice demos are available. While the choir is not auditioned, it is recommended for singers who like a challenge, read music, and have good ears. 5:30 - 7:15 p.m. on Tuesdays (12 sessions). Through Tuesday, November 12. $250. Sixty-Two Spruce Street, 62 Spruce St. Information: 802-254-9088, www.vtjazz.org; Questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
