MaidenVermont is Central Vermont’s multi-generational women’s barbershop chorus. It has grown from 13 to over 50 voices since its 2004 beginning. These women don’t limit themselves to standard barbershop – they sing doo-wop, swing, Broadway show tunes, spirituals, the Blues and other great tight-harmony pieces. If you love to sing and can hold a harmony part, please come visit them any Thursday night at the Cornwall elementary school on Rt. 30. Call 802-388-1012 for further information.
Burlington’s own samba street band will be playing their contagious brand of Afro-Brazilian percussion. Patterned after Brazilian Carnival percussion orchestras with up to 300 musicians, Sambatucada! is a smaller scale version of the traditional community street bands from Rio de Janeiro and Salvador. Smaller to fit the scale of our Vermont home, this band still produces a BIG sound! For information call Bruce (802) 658-5924.
