Ladies’ Night Out Women’s Chorus begins rehearsals

Ladies' Night Out Women's Chorus will be starting rehearsals on Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 7-9 p.m. in preparation for a series of concerts in early May. The program is "Songs for Children of All Ages" and will include some pieces for women's voices from Frostiana and Copland's Children's Songs. Lucy Allen Tenenbaum, director, and Jacob McLaughlin, accompanist, will be offering a musical experience that shouldn't be missed.

If you are a woman who likes to sing, age 16-86(+/-) and live within easy driving distance from Rutland where rehearsals are held, call Lucy and set up an opportunity to do some "Music-ing" with her. It's not an audition, simply a time to assess voices new to the group and decide in which voice part each singer belongs.

LNO is a community chorus; our goal is to be inclusive. Part of each rehearsal will be dedicated to "choir building" activities which are fun, extemporaneous experiences that promote camaraderie and improve singing skills. The LNO Chorus is about more than the performance. Each rehearsal is important in itself. Ultimately we do want to perform, some pretty complex and interesting pieces, but we also want to have some fun along the way. Each rehearsal has a gathering time with snack so the women can get to know each other and make new friends.

Come take a night out, away from your daily life, find time in your life for singing. We welcome you. Contact Lucy Allen Tenenbaum at 802-775-8004 or 802-342-8348.
