Bel Canto | Grades 6-7-8
The Bel Canto level welcomes singers entering 6th, 7th, or 8th grade. Bel Canto singers are required to make a full season commitment, though we do allow singers to join throughout the year provided there is space. Bel Canto singers rehearse once a week. At this level, balance is critical, and the repertoire, which is determined by the composition of the group, is more extensive and is performed throughout the year.
- Full Season: Registration for Full Season opens May 15 and is rolling throughout the term. The first Bel Canto class of the Full 2018/19 Season is Thursday, September 6
- Spring Session: Registration for new singers for Spring Session opens December 1 and is rolling throughout the term.
