Bel Canto Chorus is Milwaukee’s premier independent choral organization. Founded in 1931, the mission of Bel Canto Chorus is to enrich the lives of its audiences and its singing members through the outstanding live presentation of the finest choral music, and to reach out to the community in order to share the benefits and joy of the singing arts.

 

The Bel Canto Chorus is made up of mostly volunteer singers from cities and towns throughout southeastern Wisconsin and northeastern Illinois. While some of the members of Bel Canto are professional musicians, most come from a variety of other professions - they are educators, accountants, doctors, lawyers, business leaders, full-time homemakers, etc. They share a talent for singing and enjoy participating in Bel Canto because of their love of music-making, the camaraderie of the group, and the leadership of Bel Canto's Music Director, Richard Hynson. They are drawn to Bel Canto by the excellence and artistry of Hynson's conducting, the quality of the music-making, and the opportunity to perform a repertoire that is both familiar and new to them.

 

Singers are expected to attend one evening rehearsal per week, from late August through early May, with additional rehearsal requirements immediately prior to concert performances. The main rehearsal site is at MYAC (Milwaukee Youth Arts Center) in downtown Milwaukee, and regular rehearsals occur on Wednesday evenings.

 

Auditions for the Bel Canto Chorus are usually held in August and January. for more information call 414-481-8801 or visit online www.belcanto.org.
