Opposites really do attract!!  “Bel Canto” is Italian for “beautiful singing.”  Classically trained singers strive for it and it’s what their audiences come to hear.  The other side of the coin….The Art of Belting.  Musical Theatre, Rock, Gospel singers and others strive to sing beautifully, but also belt.  It is what their audiences come to hear.  Think Freddie Mercury and Monserrat Caballe singing Barcelona!!   It will be a GREAT NIGHT FOR SINGING!!
