What’s New at the BMC?
Chorale Auditions Being Scheduled
The Blanche Moyse Chorale is now scheduling auditions for new members in all vocal sections. The Chorale’s current project is a varied program of four delightful J. S. Bach cantatas — #8, #14, #20 & #60 — to be performed in early October. Auditions for this project will be scheduled during the Chorale’s summer break; the last two weeks of July. Those auditioning should be experienced in choral singing, capable of learning music independently, and comfortable singing in foreign languages.
Interested singers should contact Chorale representative Calvin Farwell at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (after July 11) at 802-257-0496.
BMC Hosts Expressive Music Therapy Workshop & Concert
A workshop and concert set for Saturday, July 21, at the BMC will explore the relationship of sound, music and vibration to the body, mind and spirit. The Expressive Music Therapy Workshop & Concert will focus on the belief that this connection between music/art and healing creates positive change in the individual and in the broader community. The goal is to use music to bring joy, healing, comfort and purpose to individual lives and to help strengthen community connections.
Music therapist Dr. Ayla Clark and her colleagues will use the creative process of musical interventions to improve and enhance the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social well being as well as the quality of life for individuals of all ages.
The concert, which will follow the workshop, features the music of Turkey. Together the workshop and concert will greatly benefit audiences members, from experienced musicians to people who are interested in expanding their healing creativity in everyday life.
Please note that BMC members are offered a 20% discount on tickets for the concert on Friday, August 10, at 8pm. Students (up to 25 years of age, with ID) can purchase tickets for $7.50 at the box office for all concerts, subject to availability.
