The Value of Discomfort

Learning to dance with others can be awkward—and intimate. Beginners step on toes, stumble, and feel silly. To progress, they must take chances and step outside their comfort zones.



College Community Chorus

Voices from the College and local communities sing together
in a joint concert concert with the Vermont Choral Union, May 4, 2014

The Community Chorus offers the rich sound of contemporary choral music by Z. Randall Stroope, Ola Gjeilo, and Morten Lauridsen, reprising beautiful choruses from recent concerts, including Lauridsen's "Sure On This Shining Night." 

College Community Chorus brings together town and gown

One of the ways that town and gown come together in Middlebury is through the 100-member College Community Chorus, headed up by Jeff Rehbach, who works in LIS. On Tuesday and Sunday evenings during the fall and spring semesters, a couple of dozen students -- some who love singing, others singing in a choir for the first time -- join folks from throughout the greater Addison County area (including College staff and alumni) to share in the experience of making music together.
