"Walk With Me": Brattleboro Women's Chorus Spring Concerts
The Brattleboro Womens Chorus will present their 23rd annual spring concert, Walk With Me, on Mothers Day weekend at Centre Congregational Church. Joining director Becky Graber and the 80-voice chorus of women will be Cathy Martin on piano and Connie Green on flute.
Last summer, a group of singers from the chorus traveled to Grand Rapids, Michigan to participate in the Sister Singers Festival, a gathering of womens choruses from across the country. The Walk With Me repertoire was inspired by that trip and features songs of travel, migration, community, and home. One of the concerts songs, Winnebago by David Maddux, about an obvious means of hitting the road, was heard at the festival.
The chorus will also sing The Little Road by Vermont composer/singer Moira Smiley who led a workshop with the chorus in March. Additional songs include the concerts title piece Walk With Me by Maggie Wheeler, Im Gonna Walk It With You by Brian Clafin and Ellie Grace, and The Road Home by Stephen Paulus. There will be two songs arranged by the Natural Voice Practitioners Network in England, Different Ships and People Get Ready, the latter made popular by Curtis Mayfield. And a reprise of A Garden of My Own by Patricia McKernon and arranged specifically for the BWC by Daniel Kallman will feature accompanists Cathy Martin and Connie Green.
The concert dates are Saturday, May 11 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 12 at 4:00 p.m., and both are at Centre Congregational Church in downtown Brattleboro. Tickets are available at the door or at BrownPaperTickets.com, $12 adults, $10 seniors/students, $20 generous. For more information, see BrattleboroWomensChorus.org or call 802-254-8994.
