A ladies choir has stepped into the recording studio to produce their first album.

Honey Belles only formed in January 2013 and have grown from a couple of members to 30 singers.

Musical director and founder of the group Kate Challinor-Moss, 38, said: “Our group has grown and people have joined us who have never sung before so that was a anew experience for them and we wanted to keep having new challenges so we thought we could make a album.

“It’s very exciting to be in the studio and our music was done thanks to dads and husbands we roped in!”

On Saturday, October 10 the group stepped up to the mic and laid down an eight track album, called Sweet Harmony, which contains show tunes and things the Belles enjoy singing such as Circle of Life from the Lion King and Something Inside So Strong.

Every Wednesday the choir meet in the Basset Rooms in Ashover and have a busy schedule line up in the run up to Christmas with an appearance at the Matlock Christmas light switch.

However, they are free to do one concert on Wednesday, December 16 in the evening.

Kate added: “We sing to ourselves all the time so it would be nice if just before Christmas we could do something so others can hear us and get in the festive spirit.”
