Brattleboro Concert Choir: Songs for the People

January 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Brattleboro Concert Choir presents “Songs for the People” in two concerts, Saturday, January 13, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, January 14, at 4 p.m. at the Latchis Theatre.

“Songs for the People” is a concert for this moment in history, consisting of music by living America-based composers that grapples with contemporary issues like climate change, immigration, and racial injustice.

“Every piece on the ‘Songs for the People’ program grapples with these ideas, and is written by a living America-based composer,” says Music Director Jonathan Harvey. “A majority of the composers represented here were born after 1980, and a majority of the compositions are less than 10 years old. This is music for our time and place.”

Composers include well-known names such as Eric Whitacre and Frank Ticheli, as well as fast-rising young composers Joel Thompson, Mari Esabel Valverde, B.E. Boykin, Sydney Guillaume, and many others. As Harvey notes, “This is today’s choral music, speaking to today’s world.”
