Canto de las Americas- Testimonials 2015
“My experience at Belle Arti Center for the Arts was one of great joy and development. The teachers were welcoming, encouraging and brought the very best out in us within such a short time.  Canto De Las Americas was a strong programme for all levels of development. The focus was on technique, stage craft and acting. During the very first session, the teachers were able to articulate the areas I needed to work on straight away and each session drew me nearer to my true and free sounding voice. The 9 day workshop culminated into a live performance at Steinway & Sons in New York City, where we were able to showcase what we had worked on over the week.  To have the privilege of working with such highly esteemed, internationally renowned technicians of voice and stage and be a part of Belle Arti Center for the Arts, is an opportunity you won’t want to miss! This workshop has clarified my career aspirations, developed my voice and stagecraft and has helped create new relationships with both fellow artists from around the world and industry professionals based in New York. I highly recommend this summer workshop for all aspiring artists in the vocal arts.”

“Canto de las Americas workshop is a great program which I recommend to every young singer.
Veronica Villarroel, Eduardo Valdes, Simon Saad and Lucy Arner have always given wise advice, which has helped me to improve my technical skills, my stage presence, my musicality and my confidence as a singer. They are not only competent, but also very human people. Thanks to the artistic directors, Claudette Munné and Massimiliano Facchini, everything turned out very smoothly and made us feel like at home. I am very grateful to all the organization of the administration, and to get the chance to perform at Steinway Hall!”
