Lots Of Christmas Cheer For Spangles Chorus
Spangles Ladies’ Harmony Chorus love to get into the festive spirit in the lead up to Christmas and 2017 was another exceptional season for the ladies who have been raising charity funds in several venues.
“This has been our busiest year yet for requests to sing at people’s Christmas celebrations” said Wendy Grant, Chorus Musical Director.
The holiday season started with three events:
The first was at the Spanglish Bar, Balsicas, with the ladies helping turn on the Christmas Lights.
This was swiftly followed by a Christmas Fair at Iceland in San Javier, raising money for APAH animal rescue charity.
We then had a Singout the following day at La Zenia Boulevard, supporting the Pink Ladies’ Santa Walk, raising money for the AECC.
Four days later, Spangles were singing at the Nosmo King function at the Restaurante Paraiso, Torrevieja.
Spangles also held their traditional Christmas Concert at Las Claras, Los Alcázares on 8th December.
“Our favourite Christmas Singout was yet to come” commented Lyn Baines, Co-Chorus Manager. “We were delighted to sing for the residents and staff of the Residencia Lozar, Pozo Aledo. They always give us a warm welcome and it’s a pleasure to sing for them each year.”
Spangles had their traditional Christmas lunch on 14th December, but the events were not over!
Spangles were invited back to the C Breeze Cocktail Bar, Playa Flamenca to help raise funds for charity. They raised 200€ and nominated Los Hermanitos Children’s Home in Altea and Los Infiernos Perrera Supporters to receive 100€ each. The children wanted a new TV and it was plain that 100€ would not be enough, so the chorus members rallied round and chipped in. Wendy and Lyn went to Altea on 6th January to present them with their new TV, much to the delight of everyone.
2018 looks like being another busy year for Spangles who were straight back into rehearsals at Las Claras, Los Narejos, Los Alcázares in January, as they get ready to compete in the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers’ (SABS) National Chorus Contest in April.
