We Did It Again!
Spangles Ladies’ Harmony Chorus is once again Champion of Spain and Portugal. They won their second gold medal at the recent Convention of the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers, which took place in Benalmádena, Málaga on 13 April. “We’re naturally delighted” said musical Director, Gail Grainger. “The chorus has worked really hard over the past 12 months to ensure that they brought home gold to Los Alcázares once more and I am very proud of them.” Not only did they win gold, but they swept the board by winning trophies for the highest scores in singing, music and presentation.
Three quartets from the chorus competed in the quartet contest: Chardonnay, Fénix and Viva, with Fénix carrying off the gold medal for the highest scoring ladies’ quartet and Viva coming fifth with their comedy piece. A fourth quartet, Aurora, was formed specifically to be ‘mic-warmers’ in the contest to help the judges tune in for the first competitor. This was their first taste of contest and they did a great job.
“We are extremely grateful to everyone who supports us and we are proud to be returning to Los Alcázares as Champions.” commented Anthea Prentice, co-Chorus Manager.
