Brattleboro Concert Choir Calendar
Brattleboro Concert Choir Outdoor Community Sing
August 8 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Free and open to all – Deadline to register is July 25.
The Concert Choir was in the midst of preparations for a performance of J.S. Bach’s motet “Jesu, meine Freude” when we shut down in-person activities on March 12 2020. On August 8, we will gather with the wider community to sing the piece together, 17 months later! We’ll warm up as a group, rehearse some of the trickier passages, and then sing the piece together. Bach’s work is a potent combination of moments of transcendent triumph, and deep mourning – a powerful fit for our moment.

All registered singers will receive sheet music and practice resources via email upon registration. Bring your own picnic dinner, and after singing, we will celebrate together with a communal meal.
