Recently, we spoke with Dr. Welborn Young, artistic director and conductor of Bel Canto Company, about the ensemble's upcoming performances entitled From Darkness to Light. The inspiration for this program of vocal works was, Dr. Young explains, his own discovery of Tarik O'Regan's "Had I nor seen the Sun," a setting of Emily Dickinson's poem. Join Bel Canto Company for an inspiring musical exploration of opposing but complementary forces at Christ United Methodist Church of Greensboro on April 18 and 20. More information about this program can be found at belcantocompany.com
