THE PRESTIGIOUS choir Aromas de Guardarmar joined forces with the Crescendo Choir last Sunday for a concert at Guardamar Music School to raise funds for the local Caritas charity.
The Guardamar choir is well known in the area as it has been making sweet music for over forty years, whereas Crescendo International Choir is also a well known and loved, if somewhat younger singing group, inaugurating twelve years ago.
The two exceptional groups of choristers were brought together for the concert by Toni Guillen, Musical Director of Aromas and accompanist for Crescendo.
The choir from Guardarmar sang first, followed by Crescendo who sang their last three songs in Spanish, before the two choirs joined together for a rousing finale of ‘Amapola, ’ a popular folk song in Spain.
The concert raised 411 euros for local charities which will be put to very good use in the town.
Crescendo Choirs ’s next concert will be at El Paraiso Restaurant near to Carrefour on Sunday June 11 starting at 16.00.
Tickets can be purchased for 5 euros each which includes a drink at the bar and are available from any choir member or by calling into one of the choir’s rehearsal sessions any Friday morning at the El Paraiso between 10.00h and 12.00h
