They have provided backing for pop acts Kanye West and the Sugababes and performed fanfares for members of the Royal family.
The all girl ensemble formed in 2004 at the Royal Academy of Music with a vision to create music for all occasions and to bring the highest level of presentation to all audiences. The Bellas now performs extensively in the UK and abroad. South Bank’s Purcell Room, BBC Radio 2 and 3 have featured the group.
