    IES Ruiz de Alda School Workshop

    What an absolute pleasure it was to be invited to provide an a cappella and barbershop 💈 workshop for this enthusiastic group of pupils, with ages ranging from 12 to 18. We had a ball and have already been invited back later this year. We are hopeful that we can get a youth chorus started here too. Photos: Lindy Easson and Polly Rimmer

    Celebrating International Women’s Day

                        Soon after Spangles gained a national silver medal at the SABS (Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers) annual convention in Benalmádena, Málaga, two chorus members took part in a 60 kilometre walk to help raise funds and awareness for the DEBRA charity, which is dedicated to helping people who suffer from the painful genetic skin condition Epidermolysis bullosa (EB).

    Cream Teas and Sunshine

    We were delighted to take part in the fundraising cream tea event at St Nicholas Church in Camposol on Saturday, 3 June. The day turned out to be a very hot one, with temperatures of around 27 degrees centigrade, but we were well cared for, with cover against the glaring sunshine. Our MD, Wendy, wasn’t so lucky but, being the trouper that she is, she stood in full sunlight for both of our sets (Wardrobe may need to make her a sunhat!). Many supporters consumed their cream teas while we sang and were happy to join in with some audience participation. The whole afternoon was well-organised and we were well…
