Turn2me organised an amazing night of music and entertainment for charity in the Pepper Canister church (St Stephen’s Anglican Church, Mount Street) on the 29th of September last, with entertainment from The Belle Harmonics, and Foinse, two great music groups.

Starting the night off, Foinse performed some of their own original material before announcing the main act, The Belle Harmonics, to the stage.

The Belle Harmonics

The Belle Harmonics is an all-female 30-member harmony collective, established in 2018, who perform an eclectic mixture of pop and rock songs. Taking to the stage they wore very glamorous, sparkly dresses and started the night off singing Wilson Pickett’s ‘Hold On’ which really got the crowd going. The audience was made up of a mixture of young and older people who were really enjoying the night and even singing along to the songs. Various members of the group came to the front and performed solos with harmony from the rest of the group. One member sang David Guetta’s ‘Titanium’ which was a real crowd pleaser. There was also a raffle at the end with loads of different prizes such as wine and original paintings.

The night which was a huge success was really enjoyable. If you are on instagram or facebook go give The Belle Harmonics a follow and see what events they have in the future.
