The best kept secret in The Park is a secret no more.
Belles and Whistles, the duo that Thisbe and the Barkettes have been mentoring privately for over a year, will make their debut tonight at the Concert for Charity in honour of Enforced Domestication Awareness Month (EDAM).[pullquote]This is a very emotional night for us.

At a press event this morning, EDAM Official Ambassador Nicoletta Moth confirmed the lineup for the concert, then added, “We are thrilled to announce that, in addition to the aforementioned musicians and singers, we have the honour of introducing for the first time the brand new singing duo, Belles and Whistles.”
Minutes later, Thisbe and the Barkettes posted a picture of the seven singers with a note that read, “This is a very emotional night for us. We are so proud of Belles and Whistles and the work they will embark on this evening. Working with them has been one of the greatest pleasures of our career and we wish them every success. And as we step back from the stage, we once again would like to thank our fans for all the support they’ve shown us over many years. We’re certain you will adore Belles and Whistles and we hope to see you soon at one of their concerts.”
The Barkettes also thanked Canine Music Association president R.F. Aarrf for helping them keep their secret and for delaying the announcement of their CMA certification.
Tonight’s concert at the Ancient Open-Air Theatre will begin at eight o’clock.
