To Wash­ing­ton

Rappahannock News - - FROM PAGE ONE • EVENTS -

Bel Canto is a group of 15 singers from our five county area who nor­mally gather in Madi­son ev­ery Tues­day to share their love of mu­sic. Four res­i­dents of Rap­pa­han­nock are among the singers: Ge­off Gowan, Sal­lie Mor­gan, Mary O’Meara, and Jennifer Whee­lock.

Now, Bel Can­ton will be per­form­ing at Lit­tle Wash­ing­ton The­atre on Gay Street at 7 p.m., on Satur­day, Sept. 23. This fall marks their 15th sea­son of singing to­gether as Bel Canto.

Un­der the di­rec­tion of lo­cal mu­si­cian Lau­ren Estes, Bel Canto has pre­pared a de­light­ful va­ri­ety of col­or­ful pieces, among which are fa­mil­iar fa­vorites Blue Moon, Fields of Gold, Deep Pur­ple, Blue Indigo, True Col­ors, Greensleeves, and Len­non and McCart­ney’s Black­bird, as well as an Ital­ian madri­gal and a tra­di­tional Ir­ish Bal­lad.

Ad­mis­sion is free, al­though there will be an op­por­tu­nity to con­trib­ute to Bel Canto’s on­go­ing sup­port if you wish. If you en­joy lis­ten­ing to Bel Canto as much as they en­joy singing, your evening will be well spent.
