Brattleboro Women’s Chorus goes online for spring season

BRATTLEBORO—The Brattleboro Women’s Chorus welcomes new members to help celebrate the group’s 25th anniversary year by singing weekly via Zoom.

Gatherings will take place on Thursdays via Zoom this spring, starting March 4, from either 10 to 11:30 a.m. or 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Rehearsals culminate in the Zoom Singalong performance on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 9.

The chosen music is an eclectic mix from around the world that organizers describe as “spirited, uplifting, and designed for online learning.” Recordings and some videos are available for practicing between rehearsals.

The Chorus welcomes anyone ages 10 and older who identifies as a woman or as nonbinary and whose vocal range comfortably includes the A in the middle of the treble staff.

The first two rehearsals on March 4 and 11 are open to anyone with no obligation to join. All singers must register via Zoom for the link.

The cost for the spring session is a sliding scale of $80 to $150 per adult (usual price, $120) with discounts for students and family pairs. Financial aid is available.
