Belle Canto

Belle Canto, which means beautiful singing, was founded by conductor and artistic director, Elizabeth Goldstein, in September, 2009. She recognized that in Sarasota's culturally-rich arts community, no one was performing repertoire for women's voices. So she set about creating Belle Canto ~A Celebration of Women's Voices. Belle Canto's varied repertoire includes both classical and traditional, secular and sacred choral works, in addition to new works by current composers.

Performances are enjoyed by audiences who appreciate the ensemble's ability to connect through creative programming and professional presentation.

From its inception, Belle Canto's goal has been to create the unique beauty and quality of sound that comes from the blending of women's voices and to leave audiences feeling joyful and uplifted.

Belle Canto is a non-profit corporation and a proud member of Chorus America.

Our Mission

The purpose of Belle Canto is to share a passionate celebration of women's voices; to promote the finest choral repertoire through performances of high artistic value; to entertain, enrich, inspire, and educate audiences with diverse and creative programming.

Belle Canto would like to express its special thanks to the First United Methodist Church of Sarasota for graciously providing rehearsal space.
