BRATTLEBORO–Taking the stage on Friday, February 3, at 8 pm, six regional high school a cappella groups will give a rousing concert at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center. All proceeds benefit the In-Sight Photography Project.

The line-up for Friday evening includes two top-notch high school ensembles – the BUHS Madrigals and the Leland & Gray Rebel Clefs – and four student-directed independent groups from the Brattleboro area – Renegade, Shoulder Narrows, Spiralia, and Xpressivo.

Madrigals is a group of auditioned singers that rehearses weekly at Brattleboro Union High School under the direction of chorus teacher Patty Meyer. Students earn credit for this class and perform in a variety of venues, including school concerts, madrigal festivals, school assemblies, and town events. The Madrigals perform songs from many styles, including but not limited to madrigals from the Renaissance, from which they took their name.

Rebel Clefs is an a cappella group from Leland & Gray Union High School. They sing a wide variety of music from madrigals to current pop hits as well as music from many world cultures. They meet once a week under the direction of Ron Kelley.

Renegade, an all-girls, student-run a cappella group, has members hailing from different high schools in the area. They’ve been singing together since 2009, always keeping in mind the fun and love that singing brings and hoping this shows through in their performances.

Xpressivo is a student-run coed a cappella group based in the Brattleboro area. Founded in 2012, the group has featured a wide variety of music, mainly within the pop-rock genre.

General admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets are available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis. Seating is limited, with some standing room available. For more information call (802) 251-9960 or email info@insight-photography.org.
