Maiden Vermont seeks new singers
ADDISON COUNTY — Do you like to sing? Maiden Vermont, women’s a capella chorus, specializes in barbershop-style harmonies, and it is inviting interested singers to visit a rehearsal any Thursday during February to find out if they want to sign on.
The rehearsals begin at 7 p.m. at the gymnasium in Salisbury Community School on Kelly Cross Road in Salisbury.
Maiden Vermont includes members from Addison and Rutland counties. The chorus is led by director Lindi Bortney of Ripton and performs a big concert in the late fall plus many other dates throughout the year.
