2:15PM-3:15PM: Barre Tones
The Barre-Tones, Inc. is a women's performing and competing chorus entertaining audiences in central Vermont since 1969. They love to sing, striving always for musical excellence in the company of women who share their passion for music. They celebrate friendship and personal growth through music, leadership, and education. They recently competed in a regional competition obtaining a score sufficient to qualify for International competition being held in Halifax Nova Scotia in November. One of its two competing quartets, "UpScale", won the quartet competition at that same event and will also compete at the International competition. The chorus offers a cappella four-part harmony and an excellent learning program in vocal and visual performance. This group of vibrant women are of all ages and are recognized for excellence in singing close four-part harmonies in the barbershop style. They welcome women to come to a rehearsal any Monday night at 7pm at Capital City Grange in Montpelier to see what barbershop is all about in the 21st century. They are pleased to perform for the public throughout the year, including an annual show at the Barre Opera House in September, Holiday show in December and other community events throughout the year - like Barre Homecoming!
