Decibelles is an all-female vocal ensemble based in the Hay-on-Wye area.
Since Decibelles formed in the autumn of 2015 we have been working on our blend of sound and a bank of repertoire to suit a variety of events. Our repertoire ranges from Bach and Faure, through gospel and early jazz, to modern pop classics.
We work intensively once a month for a full day and we also have two evening rehearsals a month. Voice parts are sent out to group members to sing along with and learn off-by-heart in between rehearsals, as we perform the majority of our repertoire without using copies of the music. To help the group bond, we spend a weekend away every year, which combines work and pleasure. These weekends have taken us to Beer in Devon, where we sang at the very end of the world famous Cobb in Lyme Regis Harbour, and to Poppit Sands in Ceredigion,
Decibelles have performed at a variety of events and venues, ranging from wedding anniversaries, 50th birthday parties and weddings, through to concerts in churches, chapels, outdoor theatres, cafes, bookshops, and lavender farms ! We are open to working on any repertoire that you might like us to sing for any event – the only limit is your imagination!
If you have an event you would like us to perform at please do not hesitate to contact us.
