THE ENGLISH Choir of Teulada-Moraira have had a very busy and successful year so far.
The season ended with the choir taking a very full part in the town’s Moors and Christian Fiesta. The president of the choir, Sue Elles, said that they were delighted and indeed honoured to be asked to participate in such an important event for the fourth year running.
The choir opened the fiesta with a concert in the beautiful parish church located in the centre of Moraira. It was a very varied programme, commencing with excerpts from “Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and Karl Jenkins “Adiemus”accompanied by flute and drum solos.
Continuing with Abba favourites some Spanish traditional songs and ending with a stirring rendition of Les Miserable’s after which the packed audience rose to its feet in a standing ovation. The following Saturday saw the choir singing from the ramparts of Moraira castle as backing for the very exciting re-enactment battle depicting the Moors expulsion from Spain.
After a well earned summer break the choir will return to their rehearsal room in Teulada with renewed vigour.
An exciting Autumn/winter programme is planned which includes a concert in aid of the Anglican Chaplaincy’s charitable causes, entertainment for Alzheimer’s day centre members.
The choir’s own, ever popular, Autumn concert will take place in November it is entitled “A Little Light Music ”and will include some of the fun numbers of Sullivan, Sondheim and Sting.
Verdi and Bizet also feature as do excerpts from “The Phantom of the Opera” “The Merry Widow “and “Fiddler on the Roof”.
Sounds like a marvellous evening with something for everybody!
The choir also plan Christmas concerts and sing-along in December.
