French Masterpieces for A Midsummer’s Night

It is probably safe to say that the Fauré Requiem is one of the most popular and performed pieces of music in the entire choral literature. And for good reason: Fauré captured the essence of all that is beautiful and transporting in a format that is modest in size, but huge in concept.

Escuelita Spanish School expands its Brattleboro offerings!

Many of us had frustrating experiences "learning" a foreign language in school. We were taught the grammar rules before we could speak and understand the language, and after several years of study we could conjugate verbs but couldn't hold a conversation. Escuelita's classes use current brain and language acquisition research to create classes that allow our students to truly acquire the language faster than they imagined possible. Our classes are not only effective-- they are extremely fun. Every class is different because they are completely personalized to the students in the group. Together, the class co-creates stories and wacky situations (ever notice how it is the strange/funny details that stick in your brain?)-- entirely in 100% comprehensible Spanish!
