A celebration of light when days are short

Bratttleboro Women’s Chorus presents annual fall concerts

The Brattleboro Women's Chorus, directed by Becky Graber, presents its 18th annual fall concerts, “Where There is Light,” on Nov. 23 and 24 at the First Baptist Church in Brattleboro.

Seventy local women and girls will perform, accompanied by guest musician Kate Parsons on piano.

Included in the performance are two of Graber's compositions: “Travelin' Light” and “Let Your Light Shine On.”

From Minnesota composer Elizabeth Alexander is a Chinese proverb set to music about light, beauty, harmony, honor, and peace: “Where There is Light in the Soul.”

The Zulu song “Thula Sizwe” is combined with Bob Dylan's “I Shall Be Released.”

Also on the program: the Kenyan traditional “Wana Baraka,” “There's a Light in the Darkness,” “Light is Returning,” “The Other Bright Shore,” and the moving “Hallowell” by local composer Stephen Spitzer.
