Brattleboro Concert Choir presents 'Return to Light'

BRATTLEBORO — After a two-year hiatus, the Brattleboro Concert Choir resumes live performances with “Return to Light,” a program of works by American composers for choir, organ, and piano.

The two scheduled performances are Saturday May 14, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 15, at 4 p.m., both at the Latchis Theatre.

The program, described as “alternately joyful and introspective” by organizers, includes 20th- and 21st-century works by Zanaida Stewart Robles, Randall Thompson, and Morten Lauridsen.

“We are so excited to bring our 'Return to Light' program to the community, since it will be our first in-person performance since January 2020,” Music Director Jonathan Harvey said in a news release. “It will be a true pleasure to share music by a fast-rising young composer like Robles, as well as two pieces that are among the most beloved in the entire choral repertoire: Thompson's Frostiana and Lauridsen's Lux Aeterna.”

He adds: “Our goal with this concert is to share some of the joy that we feel at being able to reemerge after such a dark time.”

Tickets are $18 general admission in advance, $20 at the door; youth admission $10; and under 13 free. Tickets are available through the BMC website at or by calling 802-257-4523.
