Spring 2021 Stay-at-Home Sing-Along Series & Virtual Performances

Join us!

The Brattleboro Concert Choir invites new and returning singers to take part in its Spring 2021 virtual season as the BCC’s popular Stay-at-Home Sing-Along series continues. (See schedule below.) The group also is offering virtual performances of inspiring choral works.

Music Director Jonathan Harvey and the Choir are enthusiastically committed to building and maintaining musical community. Especially now, music is an essential source of joy, solace, solidarity, and hope.

In that spirit, singers are invited to join the Choir’s virtual musical community beginning in February. A monthly Stay-At-Home Sing-Along will allow participants, via the video and audio conferencing platform Zoom, to sing together to great works from the choral-orchestral repertoire.

Participants logging into each Sing-Along session will warm up together, talk about the music and its context, and when they sing, the music will be projected on participants’ computer screens as the group sings along to great recordings. Singers will also receive digital sheet music, practice resources, and program notes in advance.

This spring, we will also create monthly virtual performances, where we each individually add our voices to build digitally compiled productions of works by women composers. Each virtual performance will be preceded by online rehearsals, also held on Zoom, during which Harvey will teach and shape the piece, preparing singers to record and submit their own individual virtual performance contributions.

The registration fee for the spring 2021 virtual season is $70, which includes digital sheet music and practice materials for all pieces. Click here to register.
