Brattleboro Women’s Chorus seeks new members

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Women's Chorus (BWC) welcomes new singers in four opportunities to try out the Chorus before committing to the semester: morning or evening on both Sept. 7 and 14.

Thursday morning rehearsals will be at the Brattleboro Music Center from 10 a.m. to noon. Thursday evening sessions are at All Souls Church from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Masks are optional for singers at these sessions.

Zoom rehearsals will take place weekly on Fridays only in October from 10:30 a.m. to noon and will be recorded.

Advance registration is required for all singers. All abilities are welcome, and no auditions are required.

The chorus welcomes anyone age 10 and up who identifies as female or non-binary and whose vocal range comfortably includes the A in the middle of the treble staff.

Musical Director Becky Graber chooses an eclectic mix of music from around the world that is spirited, uplifting and easy to learn. The chorus learns through the oral tradition, so most of their music is taught by ear, though this semester they may refer to written music at times.

Word sheets and part recordings are available to practice with between rehearsals.

For those who decide to join, the cost for the fall session is on a sliding scale of $85–$170 per adult. The October Zoom session is $50–$100. Financial assistance is available.
