Spangles Features In Corales En El Mar Concert
Spangles Ladies’ Harmony Chorus featured amongst the choruses and choirs taking part in the XIX Corales en El Mar concert in Los Alcázares recently.
“This is one of the favourite concerts on the Spangles’ calendar and we feel honoured and privileged to take part each year” remarked Musical Director, Wendy Grant.
Spangles delighted the predominantly Spanish audience by performing some songs in Spanish: Eres Tu, La Bamba, Cuando Calienta el Sol, as well as their signature piece, in Maori, Pokare Kare Ana. Mayor of Los Alcázares, Mario Ginés Pérez Cervera, presented Spangles with a commemorative plaque after their performance.
Established in December 2004 with just five ladies, Spangles now numbers more than 40 members and is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year with a Gala Dinner Dance. It’s been a busy year so far for the chorus and the rest of 2019 is even busier, with several public and private concerts booked, especially around the Christmas period.
