NewsPress Release: 12/5/01Marlboro College Women's Chorus Offers Two Nights of Performances
MARLBORO, VT - The Marlboro College Women's Chorus will give two performances this month, on December 9 at 7 p.m. in Marlboro College's Whittemore Theater and on December 10 at 7:30 p.m. in St. Michael's Episcopal Church in Brattleboro.
Led by senior Julia Slone, the chorus will perform traditional Bulgarian, Georgian, and English-language songs, as well as a new pop arrangement. A special guest appearance will be made by Jaded Jewels, a group of 10 Marlboro faculty, staff, and community members, performing two pieces arranged by Slone.
Slone founded the Marlboro College Women's Chorus in fall 2000 with 15 student-members. It has since doubled in size. The chorus has been busy throughout the year, performing at the Brattleboro Farmers Market, the Leland and Grey A Capella Fest, and even so far away as the Green Meadow Waldorf School Fall Fair in Rockland County, New York.
Slone, whose areas of study are physical theater and cultural history, is also a singer/songwriter for the band At Noise's Edge.
Admission is free and open to the public at both locations, which are fully accessible. The church is located on the corner of Putney Road and Bradley Avenue, just north of downtown Brattleboro.
