in the informal setting of their drawing room

Belle and Two Beaux

Founded by the mezzo-soprano Janet Shell, baritone Mark Oldfield and pianist John Flinders, Belle and two Beaux are an exciting ensemble who have already enjoyed considerable success in a variety of venues throughout the UK.

Since its formation, when all three musicians were studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, the group has flourished alongside its members' independent performing careers in opera and on the concert platform.

Each performer has worked in a wide range of styles from early music to contemporary and light music, reflecting their collective versatility.

Belle and Two Beaux have performed at a variety of venues including the Bath Georgian Festival, Burgh House in Hampstead, Music at Duffield in Derby, The Vine at Basingstoke, Birkenhead Town Hall and numerous other concert clubs throughout England.

An afternoon of Victorian songs and readings with the title In Pursuit of love ... was never cloying thanks to the quality of the performance and presentation of the three artists. ... The two voices blended admirably in duets by Schumann, Mendelssohn and Sullivan.
