And this is a list of all the songs we’ve ever sang:

 

You could say our repertoire consists mainly of the classics of American retro jazz & soul music of the early 20th century. You should think of names like ‘The Andrew Sisters’ (1937-1966), Ella Fitzgerald (1934-1993), Louis Armstrong (1919-1971), ‘The Chordettes’ (1946-1961) and Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962). But we like to work on one special project every now and then, something more modern and different from what we are used to. For instance we’ve sang songs from Michael Jackson and The Beatles. Also, we’re sometimes asked to sing a specific song for a performance. For prof. dr. Barbara Oomen’s inauguration we did ‘Happy Days are Here Again’, and for drs. Karla Peijs’s goodbye party we sang ‘We’ll Meet Again’ with adapted lyrics.

We work on between 8 and 12 songs at a time. Most songs we learn as a group, but we like to expand our repertoire by singing a few songs in smaller groups of 3 to 6 girls.
