Simply Blue is a four-part a cappella group of singers from Diocesan College (Bishops’) in Rondebosch, Cape Town.
The school’s aim has always been to create an opportunity for senior boys to be able to express their enjoyment of singing contemporary songs and other light-hearted classics, and to share their love of music with others.
With this in mind, Simply Blue’s repertoire includes contemporary tunes and songs from yesteryear (including a Beatles and an Elvis Medley). Over the last 19 years since its inception the group has grown in popularity and visibility. The group has performed at the Grahamstown Festival six times and has toured Argentina twice.
In 2012, it was invited to perform at the International Society of Music Educators in Greece, and in 2015 it had a most successful trip performing at the Edinburgh Festival. Last year the group returned to Greece.
