Cantare Bel Canto I
~12 to 18 years old (6th through 12th Grade)
Designed to provide increasingly advanced choral challenges and more individual solo opportunities to drive the potential and developmental needs of middle school and high school choristers, the “Beautiful Song” Bel Canto chorus balances music appreciation with artistic expression. Its repertoire includes unison through four-part harmony, multiple languages, accompanied and a cappella. As a reward for their hard work and dedication, Bel Cantos normally perform locally in a variety of venues, competitions, and concerts that may include travel opportunities both in the USA and abroad.
- Auditions: An audition is required.
- Chorus Size: 20-35.
- Performances: This group normally participates in winter and spring concerts and other various musical events, some optional, others required.
- A choral adjudication trip normally takes place in the spring. Previous locations for this have included New York City, Philadelphia, and Hershey Park.
- At the completion of each year, members of Bel Canto I are encouraged and welcomed to audition for our most advanced choral group (think “varsity chorus”), Cantare Bel Canto II.
Cantare Bel Canto I will rehearse virtually through Zoom every Tuesday night during the school year from 7:15-8:45 pm. Normally rehearsals would take place in the theater on the main level of the Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church. Approximately 28 classes. 3 additional Saturday rehearsals during the year may also be required.
Tuition is $495 for the entire season.
