Spring Fundraiser March 12- April 24
Our annual fundraiser helps to cover the maintenance, cleaning, repair and replacement costs of the 100+ beautiful string instruments we loan to our students for free at Bel Canto. I hope that every family will find a way to support the studio.This year we will be pre-ordering Hooded Sweatshirts and samples will be on display at Strings Fest for you to see and try on for size. We also have Chocolate almonds and assorted Laura Secord chocolate bars (nut-free) for sale, and you can pick up your case between March 12-27.  Packs of photo gift cards are also available.
