A Capella is a technique quite unexplored and is beginning to be brought more and more to the forefront with movies like Pitch Perfect which are appreciated by music lovers and audiences from all backgrounds. From a musical perspective, spending time with the Oxford Belles was very rewarding as they highlighted the importance of senses — singing your own melodic line while paying full attention to your surroundings and the team you work with. Each team member is responsible for recreating sounds that resemble instruments and vocals — bass lines, percussion, harmonies and so much more.
The oxford belles are creative as they explore their own talents and write parts based on their individual skills.
An amazing session, learning how vast music really is and also how enjoyable it can be in a team of women who use their strengths to make a difference and put themselves on the map.
Oxford University’s original all-female a cappella group was established in 1995 to combat Oxford’s male dominated music scene and just like the Barden Bella’s, the Belles are known for their sassy attitude and kickass arrangements of girl power anthems. These singing stars have performed for BBC Sport’s Relief, BBC South News and were voted Best A Cappella Show at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
ABOUT PITCH PERFECT 3
Now graduated from college and realising it takes more than a cappella to get by, all the Bellas return for one last performance in this beloved series. After the highs of winning the World Championships, the Bellas find themselves split apart and discovering there are no job prospects for making music with only your mouth. But when they get the chance to reunite for a European USO tour, the Bellas will come together to make some music, and some questionable decisions, one last time.
