BRATTLEBORO — An a cappella concert to benefit the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center has been postponed from this month to April 9.
The 18th (nearly) annual Collegiate A Cappella benefit concert, a benefit for the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, will feature six bands, including the Tufts Beelzebubs, Vassar Devils, UMass Vocal Suspects, Williams College Ephlats and two more bands to be confirmed . . Brattleboro Union High School alumnus Ben Brady will return to his hometown to sing with the Vassar Devils.
Tickets start at $10 and are available at brattleboromuseum.org. All the places are reserved. Participants must be fully vaccinated and may be required to provide proof of vaccination at the gate. If he is unable to provide proof, he may be refused access to the concert. All spectators will be required to wear a face covering over their nose and mouth inside the theater. Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, all ticket purchases will be fully refundable up to two weeks prior to the concert. In the event of cancellation of the concert, all ticket purchases will be fully refunded.
The Collegiate A Cappella benefit concert was started in 2004 by then museum trustee Dede Cummings. Cummings organized the Brown University Jabberwocks, of which his son, Sam Carmichael, was a member, and other groups with local connections to perform in Brattleboro, and an enduring tradition was born.
“For 17 years, the community has hosted this annual event with such enthusiasm,” said BMAC principal Danny Lichtenfeld, who happens to be a Tufts Beelzebubs alumnus. “It’s a lot of fun. We really missed welcoming him in 2021 and we’re excited to bring him back in 2022.”
