After five months of hard work we were very excited when 27th May finally arrived. We were ready to try out our five brand new songs at The Condado Club.
Ticket sales had gone really well and we even had a waiting list. We knew it would be a good evening. Most of all we were happy that our chosen charity for this event, MABS cancer support, would benefit.
The evening was a great success; our audience enjoyed it as did we and we were pleased to present Jenny Laird from MABS with a cheque for 800€.
Our new songs went down well. Some of the audience even sang along with us and danced in their seats. These songs, some up-tempo and some ballads, make our repertoire even more varied and interesting and the addition of more male voices gives increased richness and depth to all of our tunes.
All the members of our choir try to have a healthy lifestyle, for some of them, one of the reasons they are living in Spain. The BBC recently reported in their iWonder series, on the mental and physical benefits of joining a choir such as the Harlequin Rock Choir and thanks to people such as Gareth Malone who has broadcast this so well, more and more people are joining choirs. Read this article for yourselves and talk to any member of a choir and you will see it makes sense. http://www.bbc.co.uk/guides/zcc7tyc
If you want to maintain your healthy lifestyle and even improve it, join our choir. Contact details are below or go to our Facebook page or our website www.harlequinrockchoir.com to find out more. We’ll get back in touch and arrange a suitable time for you to come along to meet our Musical Directors and then arrange for you to have a trial session.
Are you holding an event for charity and would like us to perform? Give me a call or email me – details below. We would need a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks’ notice to make sure we are well-prepared for a performance.
Our next appearance is at the Summer Fête at Los Palacios, Sector A Camposol, on 16th July. The fête is on from the morning with stalls, activities and entertainment. We will be performing in the evening. We hope to see you there!
