Summer sing-along with Crescendo


THIS year’s summer sing-along with Crescendo was held at Bar El Paraiso in June where the choir meet every Friday morning to rehearse.

The money from ticket sales and a raffle at the summer sing-along and the Christmas sing-along enable the choir to pay their expenses and overheads for the year so that all monies raised at other concerts can be donated directly to charity.

It would, however, not be a Crescendo concert without some money being given to a good cause, so people were asked to donate their small change to DEBRA the butterfly children – which raised €80.

As usual, the concert featured a variety of songs in even more languages than usual. The non-Dutch choir members managed to master enough Dutch to sing the chorus of ‘Het kleine cafe aan de haven’ while Theo sang the verses.

Another new language was Portuguese with the catchy tune ‘Balaio’. John sang the popular ‘Copacabana’, again with the choir joining in the chorus. As always, an enjoyable time was had by all!

Crescendo is now on its summer break but start rehearsing again for the winter concerts on September 8 at Bar El Paraiso, Urb. Jardin del Mar (close to Carrefour), Torrevieja. Everyone is invited along to listen or join in and new members are always welcome (especially men!)
