The Mayor of Los Alcázares, Anastasio Bastida, presented the ladies of Spangles Harmony Chorus with the gold medal that they won at the Convention of the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers, which took place in Benalmádena on 13 April. Spangles performed a concert last Wednesday at the Salon de Plenos of the Ayuntamiento of Los Alcázares, where the mayor gave out the medals and remarked that he had never kissed so many ladies at one time.
This is the second gold medal won by the chorus, celebrating another year as Champions of Spain and Portugal. Their Musical Director, Gail Grainger, remarked “The chorus has worked very hard over the last 12 months to ensure that we brought the gold back to Los Alcázares and we are very proud to do so for the second time”. Chorus members are now busy raising funds so that Spangles can represent Spain overseas. Various events have been arranged, so please check their Facebook page or their website for full information.
