Belle Canto, which means beautiful singing, was founded by conductor and artistic director, Elizabeth Goldstein, in September 2009 and is dedicated to the performance of repertoire for women's voices.

Belle Canto's concerts have received rave reviews in the Herald Tribune and Observer newspapers and appearances have included holiday concerts with the Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota at the Historic Asolo in 2010 and The Glenridge in 2012. Other appearances have included the prestigious Munchtime Musicales and Selby Library Series at Holley Hall.
