Belcanto Reviews

Don’t take our word for it - read the reviews to find out what people think about us after hearing us sing and watching us perform...

I just HAVE to mention the BELCANTO Choir.  Last night I was absolutely mesmerised by their performance in Kettering.  Twice choir of the year at Llangollen amongst other accolades.  I will not mention names, but the soloists...the accompanist...the musical director...your are superb.  It truly was the most beautiful of performances.  We are extremely fortunate here in Kettering.

Following our successful and enjoyable return visit to Tenafly, New Jersey, USA, we received the following email from The Church of the Atonement, Tenafly:

Dear Barry

It's very hard to imagine all of you back in the UK already.  We are deeply grateful to you and Belcanto for the tremendously uplifting afternoon of music and inspiration.  The group is growing so beautifully.  You simply enchanted us.  Thanks also for allowing us to raise funds for our music program.  We raised nearly $400!

Please extend my warm regards and the congregation's thanks to your marvelous singers!  We look forward to hosting you again on your next American visit.

Yours truly


John Hancock, The Church of the Atonement, Tenafly, NJ, USA

It must be such a joy for you to sing with such a talented group of ladies.  You have a wonderfully varied repertoire and the sound you create together is just beautiful.  I found the whole evening very uplifting.

To Belcanto,

Where do we start?! We're not sure mere words are enough but we shall try to give it a go!

We would like to say the biggest thank you for your amazing performance on our wedding day.  You made our service unique and unforgettable.  We've been fortunate enough to hear recordings of the service and it brings goosebumps each time.  All our guests were blown away and we've even had requests for the soundtrack.

Thank you again, all our love,

Thank you so much Belcanto for making my brother and new sister in law's wedding so special.  You sounded amazing and we were so lucky to have you there!  The comments we've had about you all have been incredible.

A special thank you to Lorraine Perkins whose Ave Maria was totally stunning and who attracted so many comments from the guests.

Thank you all, you're wonderful! x

On behalf of all those people who attended your lovely concert last night (16th March 2013), I would like to say a very big 'Thank You'. What a super evening of entertainment you gave us all. The soloists were super, all very different; how nice to have such depths within the choir to draw on such talent. Barry is a superb director, putting 100% into everything he does, and all the hard work shows. 

 Judy is such a stalwart person, always to be relied upon; I was so sorry not to have a baby grand paino at least for her to play on. We hope to have raised £1000 from the evening, to be divided between the Church and the new Village Hall Funds, so a really big thank you for your contributions. We will look forward to your next concert and have a 'rest on your laurels' until then.

Dear Barry and Belcanto Choir, Many thanks for the concert you gave to help Kettering Lions Club charities on the 23rd February. As usual it was a very polished performance with a varied programme to suit all musical tastes. I have heard many excellent comments regarding the evening which everyone enjoyed. 

Once again, on behalf of Kettering Lions Club, thank you for a very enjoyable evening.

John Geary, Kettering Lions Club

I would like to congratulate you all on your performances at Llangollen 2012 - what a wonderful treat. Must admit I am not usually fond of all female groups but you changed my mind. Pity you missed out on Cor y Byd, never mind try again next year.

Dear Barry, I can hardly describe the enthusiastic response to your concert last weekend, as well as your stunning contribution to our Easter Sunday service. Our congregation, as well as our community, is buzzing about the extraordinary music that you and Belcanto brought to Atonement. We are deeply grateful for your generosity and your talent, and feel truly blessed by your visit. It struck me as musical manna from heaven! 

 Please know that you and Belcanto will always be welcome at Atonement. A word of warning: should you return, your newly established reputation here will surely pack the Little Church beyond capacity! It was also exciting for our community to have the opportunity to meet with you, and share a little bit with each other. Hands across the seas! Truly wonderful. We send our deepest gratitude and heartfelt good wishes to all of you, with warmest regards, John

I am writing to say a huge thank you for your wonderful concert last Thursday 9th February. We had quite a number of musical aficionados in our audience who were extremely complimentary about the high standard of your singing, as indeed were those of us less experienced, who found the whole evening a real joy. 

We especially loved the wide range of music chosen, something for everyone. We also appreciated the movement to and from the stage which added beautifully to the sense of 'theatre'. It is apparent how much thought and practice has gone into your performance. So, please pass our thanks to Barry Clark and the 'girls', and very good luck with your auditions for the 'Choir of the Year' competition. We hope to meet with you all in the not too distant future.
