bealecantoSeark Concert Association will present a Christmas-themed concert by the Memphis-based men’s vocal ensemble BealeCanto at 7 p.m. Saturday, December 3, at the University of Arkansas at Monticello’s Fine Arts Center.

BealeCanto is a play on the phrase “bel canto,” which is Italian for “beautiful singing.” The inclusion of the word Beale in the group’s name is a nod to the famous street in Memphis that is known around the world for its rich musical heritage. BealeCanto is dedicated to fostering men’s singing throughout the Mid-South region, expanding that mission nationally and internationally as they promote male singing in schools and society.

Tickets for the concert are $20 and may be purchased at the door, in advance in the office of the UAM Music Building Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or by calling 870-460-1060.
