We were ecstatic to win the 2011 SABS Chorus Contest in San Pedro on Saturday, 9 April – we have worked so hard for the contest and the whoops and yelps that went up from us and the audience when we were announced as the winners were incredible.
Quite a few of us woke up the followiing morning with an imprint on the side our faces, because we just couldn’t bear to take off our gold medals!
Our heartfelt thanks to every single Spangles member who has worked so incredibly hard over the past few months, to our MD, Gail Grainger, for her inspiration and encouragement, to June Mulligan and Liz Lewis for keeping things on track and to our Section Leaders – Anthea, Lyn, Babs and Linda – for making sure that we gave the performance of our lives – what a team!
We’re also extremely grateful to Monica and Andy Funnell and Sarah, Suzanne, Sarah and Amelia, better known as the lovely Miss-Demeanour LABBS Gold Medallists, for all your kind advice, support, and coaching – we are so lucky to know you.
SPANGLES IS NOW 2011 CHAMPION BARBERSHOP CHORUS OF SPAIN, PORTUGAL AND THE CANARY ISLANDS – WHOOP WHOOP WHOOP!!!!!
