The Brattleboro Women’s Chorus will present their 24th annual fall concert titled Love Changes Everything on Saturday, November 23 at 3:00 pm and 7:30 pm at Epsilon Spires. Director Becky Graber and the 100-plus member chorus will be joined by guest musicians Lisa McCormick with her ukulele orchestra and Cathy Martin on piano. The theme of the concert music is love in its many forms. By happenstance or by grace, many of the songs are by women composers: the concert title song Love Changes Everything by Lisa McCormick; two by Ali Burns of Scotland; Lullabye by Cris Williamson; the irreverent If You Love Me by Malvina Reynolds; and Holly Near’s Change of Heart, which says, among other things, “There’s a change of heart any time you join the choir.” Baby Boomer favorites include Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, All I Have to Do Is Dream, Billy Joel’s Lullabye, and a medley of Beatles tunes. And for the younger crowd, there is One Day by Matisyahu. Tickets are $12 adult, $20 generous, and $10 student and senior and will be available at BrownPaperTickets.com or at the door.

The chorus offers all women over the age of ten, regardless of musical experience or expertise, the opportunity to join together in shared musical harmony in a supportive environment. Largely through the aural tradition, the ancient practice of learning by ear, we learn songs from a variety of traditions and develop vocal production skills to offer our audiences moving renditions of songs sung by their family, friends and neighbors.
