enriching lives through music

Becky Graber

summer music programs

Becky has been leading people in song, and helping people find joy through music, her whole life. When she went to college she imagined she’d switch directions – since she’d been focusing so heavily on music as a child– but instead she graduated with degrees in Music and English, and embarked on a professional life of teaching music, storytelling, conducting, directing,  and accompanying.

Becky is known locally as the founder and director of the Brattleboro Women’s Chorus, now in its 22nd year.  She is the new proprietor of “Chimsee Music Publishing”, and these days, when she’s not leading choruses,  she spends time composing and arranging music,  and singing jazz standards. She is delighted to be back working at the BMC, one of her earliest local musical homes, and to be working with long-time friend and collaborator, Kristen Carmichael-Bowers.
