Dedicated to Excellence in Choral Singing in the Upper Valley Since 1977
Bel Canto is one of the Upper Valley’s oldest performing organizations. Founded in 1977, the chorus is dedicated to providing audiences with a broad spectrum of repertoire from medieval and Renaissance works, to baroque cantatas, music of the classical era, and contemporary works by local composers.
Singers hail from towns around the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire and Vermont, and the group is led by Music Director Jane Woods. Pianist Pierre Fournier provides accompaniment. Bel Canto is multigenerational and welcomes singers of all singing backgrounds to audition.
Bel Canto is dedicated to providing a musically challenging experience for its members, with the goal of performing interesting and beautiful music for its audiences.
