The choir, made up of Soprano, Mezzo, Alto, Tenor and Bass, sings a wide variety of songs ranging from musicals to spirituals, from pop to classical and all types in between! We’ve even sung nursery rhymes!
Crescendo lives up to its name of ‘Internacional’ because of the many nationalities in its membership, including Dutch, German, Finnish and Danish, with Spanish Musical Director and Pianist.
The choir rehearses once a week on Monday 5.30pm to 8.00pm at the Sacko’s Bar ,Plaza International, Urb el Limonar, 03184 Torrevieja Alicante
Based in Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca, Spain, it is registered as a charitable organisation and has made many contributions to charities all over Spain and in particular in Alicante Province.
For those who were able to attend the concert at La Zenia church, I hope that you enjoyed the experience. You will be pleased to know that the concert raised €1,100 which was donated to the local Caritas charity to help support the local poor and needy.
The next concert is on Sunday 5 May at Benijófar church starting at 7.30pm. Entry is free but there will be a retiring (bucket) collection in aid of the local social services' food bank.
Now some exciting news about the summer concert to raise funds for the choir. These funds are used to help pay for their extremely talented Music Director and Accompanist as well as to go towards paying for travel expenses when the choir goes to venues in other areas.
This concert will take place on Saturday 15 June at 4pm in Casa Contenta. This is a bar/restaurant at 21 Avenida Justo Quesada which is situated just beyond the Rojales Market car park going towards the Marquesa Golf Course. Tickets cost €5 which includes a drink (glass of beer, wine, cup of tea/coffee or small water). Of course you will be able to park in the Market grounds.
Tickets are available from any choir member or telephone Rachel on 617705796.
I have attached a copy of the posters for these events.
I hope to see you at some of these events.
