Bel Canto Singers to perform Fall Break concerts

The Hesston College Bel Canto Singers will present a program of sacred choral music during their Fall Break tour to Ohio and Indiana. All concerts are free and open to the public, though a free-will offering will be collected to cover program costs. Hesston College alumni and friends are particularly invited to attend.

The program entitled “Attributes, Actions and Adulation” explores the attributes and actions of God and ways in which those qualities inspire God’s people.

The 22-voice mixed chamber choir was selected by competitive auditions during the 2010-11 school year. Bel Canto is directed by Bradley Kauffman, who is in his fifth year as a music faculty member.
