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.
   We enjoyed two full years in person with that dream team before March 2020 when we had to switch to Zoom rehearsals and “summer school” workshops, our traditional, but virtual, 2020 Fall/Holiday program and our brief Spring 2021 virtual concert.  We’re delighted to say that our 2021 Holiday and 2022 Spring concerts were live and we’re planning a big year in 2022-23.
