Spangles Ladies’ Harmony Chorus joined forces with the Agrupación Coral Nuestra Señora de la Asunción and Rondalla son del Mar Menor groups in a benefit concert to raise funds for those who lost everything in the devastating floods in Los Alcázares, just before Christmas. The auditorium was packed as Spangles followed the Agrupación Coral Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion onto the stage. Spangles’ popularity continues to grow and they were able to invite their new ladies to join them in songs that they had already learned. Spangles finished their set with a debut performance of ‘Eres Tu’ which stunned the predominantly Spanish audience with a serious ‘goosebump moment’.
All three groups came together for a finale of the Himno Independencia Municipal which celebrates the municipal autonomy of Los Alcázares, which was granted on 13 October 1983. “It was a pleasure and an honour to be included in this very significant event to help our local community and we are certain that this will lead to further collaborations in the future.” commented Spangles MD, Wendy Grant. On the night, the concert raised a 1475€ and donations are still coming in.
