BEL CANTO
Bel Canto is a treble choir comprised of singers in grades 6-9.  Rehearsals emphasize the healthy development of a free and natural vocal production, while honing each singer's musicianship, expressivity and ear training abilities.  Basic 
music theory and sight-reading development is part of Bel Canto's curriculum.  The choirs performs at the December, March and May concerts.  In the fall of 2008, Bel Canto performed the world premiere of Ah, Nagasaki with the Minnesota Chorale.  Bel Canto was invited to perform at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis in a festival at the national conference of Chorus America in June 2012.

Students entering grades 6*-9 need to audition for placement into Bel Canto. *Students in grade 6 may choose to audition for Bel Canto or simply register for Prima Voce (see below).  The audition consists of basic vocalizations, range check, tonal memory and the performance of "My Country 'Tis of Thee," verse one. No other piece of music needs to be prepared.

PARTNERSHIP CHOIRS
