About Us

Bella Voce is an all-female singing group based in the city of Newcastle, NSW, Australia.  

 

Established in 2011, these four women realised their unique vocal blend and great friendship believing that this was a gift not to be wasted.  They began rehearsing and performing in and around their local area at weddings, concerts and Carols by Candlelight evenings.

In 2020 Bella Voce welcomed the perfect vocal addition to the group - Ann Robertson.

Since their humble beginnings, Bella Voce vocal ensemble have participated in many different performances, recorded 4 EP's and are singing better than ever.  Wendy, Simone, Philippa and Ann maintain a great rapport and sense of fun with each other keeping their music vibrant and full of entertainment.
