Last year, The BlueBelles sang in St George’s Hall in Bristol as part of the 2015 Festival of Song. Clearly we made a reasonable impression as we were invited back again to take part in this years Festival.
Last weekend, The BlueBelles were in Gloucestershire to perform at the Parish Church in Marshfield (where the ice cream comes from), alongside Blue Notes, The Sherlock Combs and Luana Godwin.
Eric Whitacre said once: The terror of performing never goes away. Instead you get very, very comfortable being terrified!
Last month Lucy, one of our fabulous Second Alto’s, turned 40. Well so she says anyway. She doesn’t look a day over 30 so it may well be she’s just got confused. So naturally there was a party, and all the BlueBelles, along with lots of Lucy’s other friends, were invited.
It’s always a pleasure to sing. Even better in such a beautiful location with an appreciative audience! How lucky we are to be able to have arranged this Afternoon of Jazz at Marlborough Town Hall last Sunday.
How lucky we are in Pewsey to be a part of such vocal talent. It was such a delight to be able to organise and take part in the Spring concert at St. John’s Church in Pewsey last Saturday.
On Sunday we went bright and early to Basingstoke to sing at the Anvil Theatre in the regional heats of Choir of the Year 2016, having been selected to audition after sending in our application form.
Last week the BlueBelles took part in their first ever competition, the Mid Somerset Festival held in Bath at the Guildhall. This has been on our ‘to do list’ for quite some time.
2016 looks like being another busy year for The BlueBelles. So far we have entered two competitions – The Mid Somerset Festival and the Choir of the Year, both of which we have been accepted into.
Back in September, the BlueBelles were booked to sing for a couple of ‘corporate’ Christmas functions for the British Army. The first one was at Army HQ in Andover and this was followed a week later by a visit to sing for the Warrant Officers Christmas do at Buckley Barracks just on the edge of Chippenham in Wiltshire.
