Bel canto 

Bel Canto is open to children in grades four through six. This choir practices weekly under the direction of Ms. Clare Henry, music director of St. Joseph School. The children sing once a month at the 12:15 Sunday Holy Mass September through May, and at the 4 p.m. Christmas Eve Mass.

Choristers must audition to demonstrate the ability to match pitch with Ms. Henry or Mr. Cochrane.

Choristers are encouraged to take 20-minute private voice lessons once a week with a St. Joseph choral scholar. The cost for lessons is $400 per school year. There is no cost to join the choir.


To sign up, contact Ms. Clare Henry.
