For the past ﬁve years a group of young people have been learning to sing and to perform to a very high standard in Orihuela Costa. They have built a huge reputation for their performances, mainly in the impressive Orihuela Costa Resort function rooms, where they perform to audiences of 1,000 people twice each year. They are equally well-known for their annual Christmas concerts in La Zenia church, which is also their rehearsal base in the church's underground salon.
They are taught by professional singer, conductor and vocal coach, Nigel Hopkins who came from the UK with a tremendous reputation for working with both children and adults, having performed all across the UK and Europe with the famous Royal Leamington Spa Children's Choir which he formed in 1980 and continued with until 2003.
The main difﬁculty with young peoples' groups is that children grow older and eventually disappear to university, work, or even back to the UK which has happened to 3 sisters recently.
We are looking for more children/youths between the ages of 8 and 18 years to take the group forward into our next concert/show season. Any nationality is welcome, although we mainly sing in English. Two years ago the choir consisted of children from TEN nationalities. All the little singers speak Spanish ﬂuently so communication is no problem.
We meet at La Zenia church salon (underneath the church) each Saturday from 10.30am - 12.30pm. Full training will be given. Anyone interested should come along on September 13th (1st rehearsal) or Tel: 966 775 976 for further details. This is a rare opportunity to join this elite band of youngsters whose performances thrill so many people locally.
