Dolce Canto: Dessert For Lovers Of Choral Music

Dolce.jpg
A Capella group, Dolce Canto.

Dolce Canto began in 2001 with eight friends who missed the a cappella compositions they'd studied and performed together in high school and college. On a whim, they decided to gather and read through some works. One public concert led to another. Since then, the group has grown to an auditioned ensemble of over thirty singers. John Floridis talks with director Peter Park and singers Tom Bensen and Beth Mast about the release of the group's second recording, "A Joyful Season."

(Broadcast: "Musicians' Spotlight," 12/15/16, 12/17/15 and 12/18/14. Listen weekly online or on your radio Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., or via podcast.)
