What’s New at the BMC?


Madrigal Singers Offer a “Magical” Selection of Works

The Brattleboro Music Center Madrigal Singers, directed by Douglas Frank, present a selection of the greatest hits of love, sex, and popular music that have endured over 400 years in a performance Sunday, June 24.

“Magical Madrigals & More: Love, Sex and Popular Music from the Renaissance” is set for 2 pm at the BMC. Tickets are $10 general admission and $15 for sponsors.

The BMC Madrigal Singers debuted last December as a select group of performers drawn from across the area’s singing community. Members have sung with the Brattleboro Concert Choir, Bach Festival Chorus, Blanche Moyse Chorale, Hudson Valley BachFest Choir, among others.

Summer Salons Offer Insightful, Inspiring Conversations About Music

The BMC Summer Salon series, led by violinist Moby Pearson, kicks off Thursday, July 5, with an exploration of the keyboard in chamber music, from baroque trio sonatas to 20th century works and everything in between — including pieces for glass harmonica and harmonium.

Host Moby Pearson invites Salon-goers into his home to listen to a vast swath of musical treats and perhaps pick up a few new musical perspectives along the way. Each Summer Salon is held Thursdays from 7 to 9 p.m. and include refreshments. The cost is $25 per session, or $100 when registering in advance for all five sessions. Call the BMC at 802-257-4523 for locations and for more information. Check our calendar for the week’s offering.

Brattleboro Music Center Receives Architectural Design Award

Our new home on Blanche Moyse Way recently was honored with an American Institute of Architects-Maine Award for Design Excellence. A jury of five architects awarded the BMC project a “Citation Award for Adaptive Reuse,” saying the Center “is a great example of how to do more with less to elevate the function and mission of an important organization. Integrating an existing school building and seamlessly enveloping it with a series of new volumes, the project creates a very cohesive, clear, functional and understated collection of spaces. The material palette is extremely spare and economical yet beautiful.”

The building was designed by Scott Simons Architects of Portland, ME and is located across from Living Memorial Park. Project contractor was DEW Construction Corporation.  (Photo by Ryan Bent)

Article Spotlights the BMC and its Recent Successes

We get our share of press, but this recent article in the Rutland Herald struck a chord (no pun intended!). It focuses on the BMC’s past, present and future, and our recent successes as one of Vermont’s leading classical music organizations. Kudos to its author, music critic and arts editor Jim Lowe, and many thanks to our community of supporters, family and friends. We couldn’t have done it without you!
