Bellissima: All-female A Capella (The Oxford Belles)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

Very refreshing. The Oxford Belles’ impeccable song choices were complemented by their fabulous command of singing and performance. Each of these women were equally captivating on stage, and they worked particularly well during their more energetic numbers. Their rendition of ‘Run’ by Snow Patrol was very subdued, beautifully arranged and was a great contrast to the more up-beat songs, and while songs by the likes of Katy Perry were well done and will appeal to the younger audience, they will no doubt prove enjoyable for all ages. Their set was simple, but it was all that they needed as their performance was captivating and energising without any embellishment. I would definitely make a point of seeing them again.
