Sunday, Nov. 6 — CHESTER — Big Woods Voices is excited to announce a performance to celebrate the release of their first CD, “Poetry in Harmony.” They will appear at the First Universalist Parish of Chester on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 3 p.m. Admission is a sliding scale, $10-$25 at the door. Masks will be required indoors. The First Universalist Parish is in Chester’s historic “stone village” at 211 North St. in Chester.
Big Woods Voices celebrates a cappella vocal harmony through arrangements grown from American roots genres, world folk styles, poets old and new, and Will Danforth’s deep creative well. From heart-stopping to foot-stomping, prayerful to fun-filled, dissonant to dulcet, Big Woods Voices brings the spirit of southern Vermont to life through rich harmonies and soulful interpretations.
This concert celebrates the release of the group’s first CD, Big Woods Voices: Poetry in Harmony, featuring Will Danforth’s beautiful musical arrangements of poems. The Voices (from high to low) are Amanda Witman, founder of the Brattleboro Pub Sing; Becky Graber, director of the Brattleboro Women’s Chorus; Will Danforth, an award-winning, multi-instrumental solo acoustic artist; and Alan Blood, long-time member of area groups such as the Blanche Moyse Chorale, I Cantori, Blue Moon, and House Blend.
