Bel Canto (intermediate women’s choir, grades 9-12) is a non-auditioned choir open to all soprano/alto singers in grades 9-12; no audition needed. The course will focus on the enjoyment of singing, exposure to the many styles of choral music, and the development of the skills necessary for an excellent choral performance. Bel Canto performs in the two-three major concerts each year, the MSHSL Large Group Contest, and workshops and clinics hosted at VHS. The choir embarks on a major trip every four years. This choir is a year long course; students must sign up for both semesters.
