They started singing in an actual barbershop eight years ago, and now they're fifty voices strong, made up of women of all ages.
THE MAIDEN Vermont chorus returns to Middlebury's Town Hall Theater tonight, September 29, 2012, for its second annual Fall Extravaganza. Under the direction of Lindi Bortney, the program will include songs old and new, from a variety of genres, all arranged in classic four-part barbershop harmony.
Turning the evening into an a cappella festival, the group has invited two outstanding groups to join them. Featured guests for this concert are men's barbershop champs The Green Mountain Chorus from Burlington, and Stuck in the Middle, a men's a cappella group from Middlebury College. Proceeds will go toward Maiden Vermont's scholarship fund, which is awarded to a deserving high school graduate majoring or minoring in vocal music or music education.
The Concert is tonight, September 29, 2012, at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $15 general, $12.00 seniors, and $10.00 for students to age 18, and are available by calling 802-382-9222, at www.townhalltheater.org, at the THT box office Monday-Saturday, noon – 5:00 pm, or at the door, if available.
