 Bel Canto Wedding Music Services -

Heather Batey, soprano


Bel Canto is Italian for "beautiful singing." Live music at your wedding ceremony can touch the hearts of your family and friends in such a way that pre-recorded music can never do, and adds an element of elegance to your special day.  Let me

help you create treasured memories by providing beautiful vocal music for your ceremony or reception, and also by helping you plan the music for your ceremony. 

Yes, I gladly do non-traditional and rainbow weddings.
