Brattleboro Concert Choir Plans Outdoor Community Sing August 8
The Brattleboro Concert Choir is planning an Outdoor Community Sing Sunday, August 8, at the BMC. The 4 p.m. event is free and open to all, although registration required. Use this link to register.
The Concert Choir was in the midst of preparations for a performance of J.S. Bach’s motet “Jesu, meine Freude” when in-person activities were shut down due to the pandemic. The August Community Sing will allow the Concert Choir to gather with the wider community to sing the piece together, 17 months later.
All registered singers will receive sheet music and practice resources via email upon registration. The event will take place under a tent, and participants are encouraged to bring their own picnic dinner, since after singing, all will celebrate with a communal meal.
