Mad River Chorale
“Serving Our Community
Through Song”

Mary Jane Austin, Conductor
Alison Cerutti, Accompanist

The Mad River Chorale is based in the Mad River Valley of Central Vermont, and our singers reside and work all over Central Vermont.   On January 1, 2018, we welcomed our former accompanist, Mary Jane Austin, as our new conductor.  Alison Cerutti, our longtime friend who has accompanied us many times in the past, is on hand to support us as we learn and perform our programs.


…has ended, as you can imagine, BUT due to the incredibly hard work of Mary Jane and Alison we finished up scheduled rehearsals on Zoom.  You can see a 2-minute segment form WPTZ Channel 5 news about that on their website. We wish we could tell you what to expect next but like most things in spring 2020, we just don’t know. 


For further information about singing with the Mad River Chorale please see the Join Us page on this site, and/or call Jane Hobart at 496-2048.

Our community chorus usually presents two concerts each year.  One is always in late November or in December, usually a holiday offering, and one in late spring or early summer. Programs range from classical music through jazz, traditional, contemporary and Broadway, in a variety of venues.

Singers are welcomed whether experienced, inexperienced or returning after years away from the chorus.  Although we are non-auditioned, singers must be able to match pitch and sing with their section, and are expected to put in time outside rehearsals to learn music. 

New singers can always take a few weeks to decide whether to commit to singing with us.
