About the Bel Canto Senior Singers Program
The Bel Canto Senior Singers Program began in 2006 at San Camillo Senior Living Community in Wauwatosa. A second site was established at Holy Apostles Parish in New Berlin in March of 2014. The Senior Singers Program is open to anyone in the community 55 or better who enjoys singing, regardless of previous singing or musical experience. No audition is necessary. All kinds of music are performed; hymns, Christmas carols, Broadway tunes, popular songs of the past - almost anything.

There is increasing scientific research that being a member of a chorus has positive physical, mental, emotional, and social benefits for all age groups.  Specific research shows that senior citizens who belong to a chorus experience less depression, less falls, less visits to the doctor, and less need for medication than the general population.  Older adults who sing also report a lift in their moods, increased energy, and increased social interactions.

The program is run by professional conductors, accompanists, and administrators from the Bel Canto Chorus organization. A typical rehearsal begins with gentle stretching and vocal warm-ups. The bulk of rehearsal is spent learning the music, but time is also given to learning basic musical concepts and practicing good singing technique.
