Brattleboro, Vt. - Friends of Music at Guilford is beginning rehearsals next week for its "A Cappella à la Carte" concert season finale on Saturday, June 8, which follows its brief annual membership meeting and a community potluck dinner at Guilford Community Church in the Algiers village of Guilford.
The Guilford Chamber Singers will be led again by Tom Baehr, who conducted a group of nearly twenty singers for the organization's Christmas at Christ Church program in December. Entitled "Melodies Steal Into My Heart," the proposed spring program begins with madrigals, travels through 19th Century English Part Songs, and also includes some 20th Century tunes, a couple of 21st Century works, and even some Hoagy Carmichael.
The full group may be broken into smaller quartets to reflect singers' interest in performing a few of the titles. Rehearsals begin on Monday, March 11, at All Souls Church, 29 South Street, West Brattleboro, just over a mile west of Exit 2 off the Interstate. Interested singers are asked to contact Tom Baehr at (802) 387-2796 for further details.
