Bel Canto trip to England
Support our trip to Canterbury, Coventry, and Southwark (London) Cathedrals.
The Bel Canto Youth Chorus of the Bach Choir of Bethlehem is excited to participate in the Canterbury International Children’s Choir Festival this summer, the last time this festival will be offered. Our participation is particularly meaningful as it is the same festival in which we participated in our very first international tour in 1999!
Additionally, we have been invited to perform a noontime concert at Coventry Cathedral. Last season we served as the children’s chorus in a performance of Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem, the piece that was commissioned for the consecration of Coventry Cathedral. We are so excited to bring our understanding of this major work full circle through our visit and performance there.
Former choristers who have traveled with us describe the experience as “transformational,” “life-changing,” and “an incredible learning experience.” However, we have many who are simply not able to afford such outstanding personal, educational, and musical experiences. Everyone in our organization is working hard to raise funds for those who have financial need, but we need your help.
Please help us change the lives of our singers with your generous donation! Your contribution will go directly to supporting choristers who might not otherwise be able to be part of this opportunity to become world citizens.
Thank you for your generosity!
