Bel Canto is an auditioned treble choir made up of students from year 10 and up
They have had an extraordinary year starting off with winning 3 awards at the Regional Big Sing Competition in Christchurch. They then were given the amazing opportunity of performing and working with Julia Deans, Bella Kalolo and Flip Grater for the Christchurch Arts Festival.
The choir came together in beginning of the year and have had multiple camps during weekends combined with our two rehearsals a week on a Monday lunch and Friday after school. Through lots of hard work and combining all the amazing talent of each member, Bel Canto were able to create some amazing sounds and a strong bond was formed between the students.
I have been a member of Bel Canto for 3 years now and it has been a pleasure to work with the group as one of the student leaders this year. I wish them all the best for the years to come.
A huge thanks goes to Sue Densem for all the amazing work she does with the choir and all she sacrifices to make everything come together.
