Brattleboro Concert Choir
The Brattleboro Concert Choir performs an exciting and challenging repertoire, ranging from classic choral masterpieces to rarely heard or newly commissioned works. The Choir’s far ranging and adventurous programming involves innovative collaborations and presentations, and presents dynamic concerts to packed audiences twice yearly. Under the energizing direction of Music Director Susan Dedell, the choir commits to a high level of performance standard and musical integrity.
The BMC’s oldest performing ensemble, the Brattleboro Concert Choir was created by Blanche Moyse even before she established the BMC. Since 1989 the chorus has been directed by Susan Dedell. Over the twenty-five years the choir’s programming has included such works as the Rachmaninoff All-Night Vigil, Handel’s Israel in Egypt, Bloch’s Sacred Service, Mozart Vesperae Solemnes, and David Fanshawe’s African Sanctus; as well as the world premiers of Nico Muhly’s Jubilate and Paul Dedell’s Divine Chemistry, written expressly for the Concert Choir.
The Choir is open by audition. Singers interested in learning more about the chorus, and about how to sing in this season’s productions should contact Susan Dedell at the Brattleboro Music Center, 802-257-4523, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings, with sectionals on Mondays.
