    Virtually Spangles

    So, just how is it possible to qualify as a chorus member in these restrictive, pandemic times? Spangles Ladies’ Harmony Chorus has found a solution and four members have proved that it’s possible to learn songs and pass auditions from a distance. When the first lockdown started, Spangles’ management team had to think on its feet to keep everyone engaged and focused. Zoom meetings were fun to keep in touch with each other but, because of latency, it was impossible for everyone to sing together. Luckily, the chorus has a totally dedicated Musical Director in Valerie Lynch, who was willing to give up two days every week to offer individual,…

    Food Bank Donation

    Spangles Ladies’ Harmony Chorus, the Rondalla Son del Mar Menor group and and the Agrupación Coral Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de Los Alcázares held a joint concert back in March this year to raise much-needed funds for those affected by the Los Alcázares floods of September 2019. Having raised an amazing 1100€, the whole of Spain then went into Covid 19 lockdown and any presentation had to be put on hold. Although confined to their homes, Spangles found ways to keep active by making masks for local hospitals, having Zoom rehearsals, virtual happy hours, quizzes and making virtual videos. It was a joy to be given freedom of movement…
