Rappahannock’s a place to observe more than the seasons of nature — there are seasons year-round of music, theater and other performances, from the intimate Theatre at Washington and RAAC Community Theatre to the Castleton Festival’s summer opera and classical music festival and year-round performances at Castleton Theatre House. Rappahannock is also home to talented performers you’ll often find performing at live music venues around the county.
Bel Canto Vocal Ensemble is an auditioned mixed voice chamber choir that sings a wide variety of repertoire ranging in character from the silly to the sublime. Based in Madison, Virginia, members of the group are drawn from the surrounding counties in central Virginia. The ensemble is directed by Bob Burnett and accompanied by Fay Utz.
Our Mission is to inspire and empower children to work together to become creators of their own music and to rekindle creativity as a core value in education.
