Belle Canto, which means beautiful singing, was founded in 2009. The renown women’s choir consists of approximately 15-20 women from all walks of life brought together by their love of singing. The ensemble’s goal, under Nicole Smith’s direction, is to create a unique beauty and quality of sound that emanates from the joyful blending of women’s voices.
In addition to holding concerts and festivals, Belle Canto is also a non-profit organization. The ensemble works hard to make a difference in their community. They perform at local nursing and senior citizen homes. They also work with Sarasota Memorial Hospital to bring the healing power of music to patients in need. This will be their first performance for the Palm Aire Women’s Club, and we are hoping that it will become a holiday tradition.
This holiday event is certain to be fun and exciting and is open to the public. Reservations are $27.00 which include entertainment, and lunch. Checks should be sent to the PAWC, P O Box 21051, Bradenton, FL 34204 or left at the PAWC mailbox in the Palm Aire Country Club office. Checks must be received by December 10th. Please contact Judi Bouchard to confirm your reservation.
