We are delighted to announce that we will be performing on stage again at this year’s Calne Spring Sing. This is the fifth year the Calne Spring Sing has been organised by the town council and it looks like being a great event with lots of choirs joining together to perform at venues all over
It is always special to be asked to sing at a wedding, but even more so when it’s for one of our own! Delighted to be rehearsing for the BlueBelles wedding of the year, and wishing Hannah and Steve all the very best for their preparations. Love and kisses xxxx
Last Sunday, The BlueBelles performed as part of a ‘Musical Matinee’ at the Pewsey Heritage Centre. On this occasion there were 6 of us, and the split was such we only had 1 singer on each of the inner parts (technically the Lead and the Baritone if you adopt strict barbershop terminology!).
Last week the BlueBelles were invited to sing at a Wedding in Stanton Fitzwarren at the Stanton Manor Hotel. Because the wedding was near Christmas (13 December) we had been asked to sing a number of Christmas Carols and other festive songs whilst the guests had coffee after the Wedding Breakfast.
When you sing in a choir, Christamas effectively starts on 1 December, certainly in terms of public performance. I’m sure, like me, you cannot abide these shops which insist on playing Christmas songs in their stores from October onwards. However, for choirs, it’s usually about October when the choirmaster starts introducing Christmas songs to learn.
