The hills of Orihuela are alive… with the ‘Sound of Musicals’


AFTER THE outstanding success of the Melody Makers International ‘Andrew Lloyd Webber’ concerts in January, the choir will wow crowds again in a concert on Saturday June 24 as they pay tribute to some of the all-time favourite musicals to have graced stages from the West End to afar.

The choir will perform hits from Les Miserables, My Fair Lady, Oliver, and West Side Story amongst many more under the baton of Nigel Hopkins, who ‘always manages to get the very best performances out of all the choir members’ in this charity concert supporting Orihuela Costa Community Care.

Promising the ‘Sounds of Musicals’ concert to be even better than the ‘Andrew Lloyd Webber’ concerts, the show will also feature some exceptional solos from choir members who are making a big name for themselves as professional performers.

Melody Makers International concerts are always accompanied by a live band. Mathew Hopkins and two other members of the band fly from the UK to accompany the choir and really make MMI concerts exceptionally special.

Matthew, Director of Music at Nottingham Trent University, has established a national and international reputation as a choral and orchestral conductor, with many acclaimed performances across the UK and Europe.

Matthew has directed choral performances in some of the finest venues in Europe, including St.Thomas, Leipzig, Barcelona Cathedral, Montserrat Abbey in Spain, Lichfield Cathedral, Amsterdam Cathedral, Symphony Hall, Birmingham and the Nieuwe Kerk in Delft.

The ‘Sound of Musicals’ concerts will take place at the Orihuela Costa Resort on Saturday June 24 with an afternoon performace at 2.00pm and an evening performance at 8.00pm.

Tickets are available from La Ponderosa Gift Shop at La Zenia, the Card Place at Punta Prima and Benimar plus from any member of the choir.
