LOVERS OF musical theatre in Orihuela are in for a treat this weekend.
Two fabulous concerts, showcasing songs from a number of popular musicals, will be held at the Orihuela Costa Resort, this Saturday June 24 at 2.00pm and 8.00pm.
Melody Makers International under their conductor, Nigel Hopkins are performing another great concert featuring music from some of the best musicals the West End and Broadway have staged, with numbers from My Fair Lady, Oliver, West Side Story and the long running stage sensation Les Miserables.
The choir is also very fortunate to have a number of truly talented soloists, some of who are making a big name for themselves as professional performers.
Rebecca Holt is a regular professional soloist singing in many venues on the Costa Blanca, including her recent sensational performance at the Benidorm Palace with Joe Longthorne.
Verity Hall, another young lady with a great musical future in front of her, recently performed a concert with Nigel Hopkins to outstanding critical acclaim, proving these two young ladies have great singing careers ahead of them.
However, Melody Makers also have at least three other outstanding soprano soloist singers plus a chorus under the baton of Nigel Hopkins who will perform some great choral arrangements the popular songs.
Nigel, who always manages to get the very best performances out of all the choir members, said, “The Sound of Musicals concert promises to be even better than our previous Andrew Lloyd Webber concert.”
The choir will have a live band supporting their shows, which include three members flying in from the United Kingdom especially for the concert.
Tickets are available from La Ponderosa Gift Shop at La Zenia, the Card Place at Punta Prima and Benimar, Debra shop at Quesada plus any member of the choir.
These concerts will be supporting Orihuela Costa Community Care, a recently formed local charity.
