How you can help
Support by donating
We pay our faculty. Poorly. They come for the small fees we offer because they all believe in our mission to serve the most talented and most deserving singers. The vast majority of these singers come from Mexico and most need financial assistance to succeed. Your financial donation will make a huge difference in the lives of the singers we invite to San Miguel.
Our budget is very lean. Virtually of our funding goes to support the singers in their education and training. Nothing is spent on fundraising. A tiny amount is spent on advertising, otherwise no one would know what we are doing!
Please click on the DONATE button in the upper right corner of this and every page, and give generously. The singers will be grateful, we will be grateful, and you will make a difference and I imagine that will make you feel good. Thank you.
Support by volunteering
There are many ways to volunteer. We volunteers to do things like take tickets and pass out programs; to help set up chairs before a concert; to help with advertising and public relations; to organize hosting families and housing for our singers, faculty, and staff; to take photos and videos; help organize fundraising events; to organize volunteers; and other needs as they arise. We operate with barely no staff during the year, so our volunteers are the backbone of what we do.

Support by hosting a singer
All of the singers and other participants need housing. If you are interested in hosting someone in your home or if you have an apartment or home that you can loan Bel Canto, we would be very interested in hearing from you. Please contact us using the form below! And thank you very much! You never know, you might be hosting a future opera star or Met Audition winner. At the very least you will be helping someone pursue their dream.
