High school a cappella groups eager to dazzle Brattleboro

BRATTLEBORO — Taking the stage on Friday, Feb. 3, at 8 p.m., six regional high school a cappella groups will give a rousing concert at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center.

Started more than a decade ago to pair with the next day's annual collegiate concert at the Latchis, the annual High School A Cappella Concert gets rave reviews each year. All proceeds benefit the In-Sight Photography Project, according to a news release.

The lineup for Friday evening includes two top-notch high school ensembles - the Brattleboro Union High School Madrigals and the Leland & Gray Rebel Clefs - and four student-directed independent groups from the Brattleboro area: Renegade, Shoulder Narrows, Spiralia, and Xpressivo.

General admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets are available at the door on a first-come first-served basis. Seating is limited, with some standing room available.

“This concert is about high school kids raising money to help other high school kids,” says emcee Dede Cummings, who founded the annual event a decade ago in support of In-Sight, which offers its programs regardless of ability to pay.
