Happy May Day!

Happy May Day from Chorale Bel Canto!
We are hard at work preparing the music for our final concert of the season on May 16.  And meanwhile, the dancers of ArtistsPlus Productions are preparing to dance the story of The Unicorn, The Gorgon, and the Manticore.  These photos (courtesy of Whitney Browne and ArtistsPlus Productions) will entice you!

Please join us for a thrilling program to close our 33rd season of beautiful singing!

You are in for a treat: a 20th century madrigal fable by Gian-Carlo Menotti.
Chorale Bel Canto will be joined by dancers from ArtistsPlus Productions, who will dance the story as it is sung by members of the Chorale. A challenging program, musically and philosophically!

Great Opera Choruses

Chorale Bel Canto, 80-voices strong, will sing eight well-known opera choruses.  Soloists will be young artists from Redlands Opera Theatre.
Thrill to the familiar melodies of beautiful choruses by Mozart, Bizet, Donizetti, Leoncavallo, and Verdi.

We look forward to seeing you at our donor reception following the concert!                                     
Thank you, Whittier Public Library!
