Information
The Retreat for Bel Canto, Concert Choir, and Noise Complaint is an amazing weekend opportunity for our choirs to participate in intensive rehearsals while getting to know each other as Choir team members. It is an important component of the program as the Choirs prepare for Concerts and ultimately, the spring tour.
