Bel Canto Choir

The Bel Canto Choir is made up of seventh and eighth graders.  It is our more competitive, audition-only girls choir.  In this group, students sing more difficult music and focus on advanced techniques for their voices.  Students learn about a variety of styles in music and how to apply them to their singing.  Bel Canto performs at all choir concerts, and competes in UIL Concert and Sight Reading as well as the Director’s Choice Festival.  Students are also encouraged to compete in All Region Choir and the LISD Solo and Ensemble Competition.  Bel Canto has won several "Superior" awards in both UIL Concert and Sight Reading and the Director's Choice Music Festival.  They have also received "Best In Class" and "Best in Show" at the Director's Choice Festival!

For students who have been singing for two or more years.
