2018 started with a bang as we headed off on 2 cruises around the beautiful Caribbean at the start of January on P & O’s Ventura and Oceana. Not only did we have a brilliant time singing on board but also in our downtime ashore, getting to experience what the gorgeous islands had to offer, including swimming with turtles! That was definitely a “pinch me” moment!
Earlier this week, we were invited to the launch for Steinway & Sons’ stunning new Sunburst Collection at none other than the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Celebrating the crossover of classical with other genres of music (very apt for Ida!), it was an honour to attend such a prestigious event in such hallowed halls, where we also had the pleasure of seeing our good friend Dominic Ferris (The Piano Brothers; Ferris & Milne) perform on the glorious new Sunburst grand piano, alongside BAP (Germany’s biggest rock group) and the fabulous Myleene Class! We hope to revisit Abbey Road one day to perhaps record an album of our own. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves…
As ever, things have been busy at Ida HQ as we continue to compose, arrange and rehearse songs for you which we’ll hopefully be able to share with you very soon! For now though, we’d like to invite you to view our new video, Parla più piano (The Godfather theme).
Make sure to wrap up warm as it’s apparently the coldest week of the year! And happy Valentine’s Day to those who will be celebrating it next week. <3
We can’t believe December is nearly upon us! We’re in full swing with our Christmas rehearsals, feeling more and more festive by the second; Bethan even has her tree up!
With the jingle bells a-calling, we’re extremely excited to be kicking off the festivities by opening the gala of the Greenwich Wintertime Festival on the 1st December. We’ll be performing on the main stage at 8pm, so any London-based folks, we do hope to see you there with (jingle) bells on!
The end of November sees us filming some exciting new music videos in beautiful, rural locations around Somerset. If you haven’t yet checked out our videos, then do have a look on our Ida YouTube channel.
We’ll once again be sailing the seven seas just before Christmas on P&O’s Adonia from the 12th – 16th December, just before heading home to our families in Australia, Scotland, Jersey and Somerset!
2018 will be upon us within no time and we have some exciting plans in the New Year that we’ll keep you updated on J
Keep warm everyone! Have very Merry Christmases and if you haven’t done so already, please do keep in touch with us on social media @idagirlslondon. We love hearing from the lovely friends we’ve made all around the globe.
Love Ida xxxx
