In honor of founder Blanche Moyse's 100th birthday the Brattleboro Music Center is pleased to announce the foundation of the Jubilee Children's Chorus for children ages 8 through 13 who are excited by singing. The Chorus will be under the musical direction of Susan Dedell.
Rehearsals of the Jubilee Children's Chorus will be on Tuesdays, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. beginning the week of October 27. Rehearsals will be located on the new Hilltop Montessori School campus at 120 Summit Circle in West Brattleboro.
The Jubilee Children's Chorus will launch its premier season with a work especially commissioned for this new ensemble by composer Paul Dedell, with media design by Finn Campman.
This exciting new composition, Songs of Divine Chemistry, is scored for children's chorus, adult choir, and pitched percussion and drums, and utilizes film and shadow puppets to create a stunning landscape of sound and vision.
Songs of Divine Chemistry will be performed on the main stage of the Latchis Theatre on January 15 and 16, 2010, in collaboration with the Brattleboro Concert Choir.
Children (ages 8 through 13) who are interested in singing should contact director Susan Dedell at 348-7735 to schedule a vocal placement interview and for further information. Fee is $175 for 12 weeks which includes additional rehearsals and performance.
Membership in the chorus will be initially limited to 25 participants; so early enrollment is highly suggested.
