The Broadway Belles is VOCE’s high level performance group. This group is open to 8th -12th grade ladies who are currently taking private lessons with one of our VOCE instructors, or participate in our group voice lessons through Advanced Voices.
Where our group and private voice lessons focus on the training of the voice 1st and the performance of the song 2nd, The Belles is strictly a place where our more advanced and older students can have more of an opportunity to work on performance skills through solos, duets, trios, and small ensemble numbers. They perform predominantly musical theatre, pop, and vocal jazz music. Each Belle is given their set list to learn and has access to rehearsal materials for outside practice. While rehearsing, Belles will have the opportunity to regularly work with microphones as this is an important part of CCM (Contemporary Commercial Music) training for performance.
Singers are expected to know their music for rehearsals so our time is spent sculpting performance, not learning notes. The rehearsal commitment is small, but the expectation of singers and their preparedness is high. This is an elite group of vocalists who are highly committed to improving their performance skills.
