The Brattleboro Concert Choir performs an exciting and challenging repertoire, ranging from classic choral masterpieces to rarely heard or newly commissioned works. The Choir’s far ranging and adventurous programming utilizes innovative collaborations and presentations, and presents dynamic concerts to packed audiences twice yearly. Under the energizing direction of Music Director Susan Dedell, the choir commits to a high level of performance standard and musical integrity.
The BMC’s oldest performing ensemble, the Brattleboro Concert Choir was created by Blanche Moyse even before establishing the BMC. Since 1989 the chorus has been directed by Susan Dedell. Over the five years the choir’s programming has included such works as the Rachmaninnoff All-Night Vigil, Handel’s Israel in Egypt, Bloch’s Sacred Service, Mozart Vesperae Solemnes, and David Fanshawe’s African Sanctus; as well as the world premiers of Nico Muhly’s Jubilate and Paul Dedell’s Divine Chemistry, the latter both written expressly for the Concert Choir.
