Last night saw the BlueBelles first rehearsal of 2015 and the introduction of 3 new songs. Lollipop, And so it goes and Yesterday.
At the rehearsal the following plans were discussed for 2015:
1. Record our First CD
With an increasing repertoire we decided it was time to record the BlueBelles first ever CD. The plan is to record in around April or May time once we have found a local church or other suitable venue which has the right sort of acoustic to do justice to the choir. As well as recording a CD, we also plan to record a few tracks which can be put on the website so you can hear the BlueBelles.
2. Enter a Competition
This has been under discussion for a while now and it was decided to enter the BlueBelles into the Mid Somerset Festival this year. The deadline is fast approaching. Because of members commitments we will be entering a category for Choirs of up to 16 as this takes place at a weekend rather than a specific barbershop category on a Thursday, but nevertheless it should be a good challenge.
3. Weddings & other Private Functions
Part of the reason for recording a CD and creating some tracks online is to help us get more gigs to sing at Weddings at other private parties / corporate functions. The BlueBelles are the perfect group to sing at a wedding reception or corporate dinner as their repertoire is wide ranging to suit all tastes but the choir is small enough to be almost discreet whilst adding an air of style to the whole occasion.
