August 25, 2020 – Bel Canto Institute San Miguel is very pleased to announce our answer to Covid-19. During the fall of 2020 and the winter of 2021, we will be offering each month a Bel Canto Weekend. These will be online training weekends for our 2020 Singers, who were not able to get the promised training due to the pandemic. One weekend in each of September, October, November, January, and February, Bel Canto faculty members will meet individually online with our 2020 Singers for lessons, coachings, and sessions. Our hope is to produce a virtual concert following each Bel Canto Weekend.
We are very grateful to the group of donors, our wonderful Patronato, who have come forward to make this happen. Thank you all, so very much!
