Welcome to Bel Canto Chorale!

We offer an opportunity for you, your family and friends to participate in musical performances in an important role as a member of the audience. We are dedicated to enriching the lives of both - those who wish to sing and those who wish to listen. Only the generosity of our contributors allows us to continue our tradition of offering outstanding vocal performances in Southeast Iowa.

Burlington Bel Canto 50th Season

We are SO excited to be celebrating our 50th Season Anniversary!! We want you to join the party! You can participate by learning and singing or simply sit back and enjoy watching and listening to the beautiful music.

Incorporated in 1968, followed by Bel Canto Chorale’s inaugural concert in the Spring of 1969, our extensive music repertoire and library has been shared with thousands of listeners at innumerable different venues. Over these 50 years we’ve performed at local sports events, club organization meetings, park celebrations, Steamboat Days, in churches, synagogues, auditoriums, libraries, banks, parades and all over southeast Iowa with other choirs, bands and orchestras.

April 2018 several of our singers were thrilled to perform with the King's Singers and a mass choir at Carnegie Hall.

Our Fall Concert is right around the corner on Sunday, October 28th at 2 p.m. Please mark it on your calendar and stop by our ticket outlets beforehand. If you wait until Sunday, you can purchase a seat for just a little bit more. We look forward to seeing your face in the crowd smiling with relaxation and pleasure.

If you’d like to join us on stage for our annual Festival of Lessons & Carols the first weekend in December or will find time to be part of the Chorale for our Spring concert, make sure you contact us. We’d love to have you share in the experience and become part of the next 50 years with Bel Canto Chorale.
