Radicals, Belles and Femme Fatales is a spectacular musical celebration of female voices from the 60s to today.

Presented by the sassy St Kilda-based pop choir The Decibelles, Radicals, Belles and Femme Fatales pays tribute to six decades of iconic trailblazing female pop artists.

Held at the Meat Market in North Melbourne, on Saturday August 12th (3pm and 7.30pm), this live music extravaganza will feature music from The Shirelles and Lesley Gore to Madonna, Adele and Beyonce!

The amazing 35 pop divas of the Decibelles will be conducted by classically-trained Colombian mezzo soprano Ursula Paez and accompanied by the only bloke in the troupe, pianist Joe Mellling.

Ursula 's commitment to classical-standard excellence is a match for the style of the choir, who will perform detailed and delicious four-part arrangements of pop music favourites from the 60s to now.

Ursula also conducts the Melbourne male choir Low Rez and The Alphingtones, and finds time to appear in occasional opera performances with companies such as Victorian Opera and Opera Australia.

Joe Melling, like Ursula, is an accomplished classical musician who has been playing piano since the age of four. As a child, he performed Rachmaninoff's First Concerto with Texas' Plano.

Radicals, Belles & Femmes Fatales will give the audience a juicy taste of the music of each generation and also honour the legacy of feminism in popular music. From Aretha to Alanis, from Madonna to Beyonce, Radicals, Belles and Femme Fatales is sure to delight all ages. Don't miss this extraordinary music extravaganza in Melbourne this August - Two shows only!

Choose from 2 performance times, 3pm and 7.30pm at the Meat Market. Tickets are now on sale through Ticketebo; prices start from $15.
