Blanche Moyse Chorale Performs Brahms’ Requiem October 9
The Blanche Moyse Chorale will perform Brahms’ Requiem and Nänie, Op.82. Sunday, October 9, in a concert at Marlboro College’s Persons Auditorium.

The Blanche Moyse Chorale  was founded in 1978 by Blanche Moyse as a chamber choir which focused primarily on the Church Cantatas and other choral works of J.S. Bach, and was showcased in the annual New England Bach Festival, as well as in other concert settings. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Mary Westbrook-Geha, the Chorale has expanded on its beloved Bach background, now exploring an ever-widening range of repertoire with a fresh commitment to the highest level of choral excellence, precision and beauty of tone.

Pianist Chonghyo Shin Performs at the BMC October 16
Chonghyo Shin, a longtime member of the Brattleboro Music Center faculty, will offer a program Sunday, October 16, including Bach’s French Suite, two Schubert Impromptus, and three Chopin Etudes, with additional selections by Grieg, Albeniz and Debussy.

The concert is scheduled for 3 p.m. Admission is by donation, with proceeds benefiting the BMC Scholarship Fund.

Mrs. Shin joined the BMC faculty in 1980 and says of her years on the faculty, “Playing and teaching piano are my passion!” Her love of Chopin’s Etude Op. 25 No 1, known as the “Aeolian Harp,” started when Mrs. Shin first arrived in the US and attended a concert by the legendary pianist Arthur Rubinstein. “I didn’t know piano could sound that way,” she says.  “That’s when I decided to become a pianist…to create that sort of beauty.”  She returns to this Etude, along with other of her favorite works for this special concert in support of the Music School scholarship program

Currently teaching piano at the BMC and Amherst College, Mrs. Shin is a former teacher at the Preparatory Division of the New England Conservatory and at Keene State College. She has been a soloist with the Boston Pops, Pioneer Valley Symphony, New England Conservatory Orchestra and the Windham Orchestra.
