After last year’s successful performance ‘Pop Goes the Choir’ from Burnham
in England are returning to Torrevieja. They will be singing on Sunday 13 th
May in the Paseo Maritimo Juan Aparicio, next to the Hombre del Mar. Their
performance was announced by Councillor Carmen Morate as the first event
this year in the Feria de ONGs or Charity Fair. An ONG is an officially
registered charity in Spain.
Different charities will have stalls in place on the paseo between 11am and
2pm on the 13 th May. On the stalls there will be information about what the
different charities do as well as opportunity to sell some merchandise.
Councillor Morate has asked voluntary associations and charities to sign up to
the event. ‘It is important that people can see what you do,’ she explained.
One of those charities attending will be Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre.
They will have a stall which includes information about how they help
abandoned and abused horses. They will be happy to answer your questions
and explain more about what they do. There will be t-shirts available to
purchase along with pictures and books too.
Pop Goes the Choir will be performing on the day at 12.45pm. This isn’t the
only performance they will be making. You can also see the choir in the
Casino on Friday 11 th May at 8.00pm and in the Paseo Juan Aparicio by the
Hombre del Mar on Saturday 12 th May at 7.30pm. The group perform songs
from the 50s to the present day in their own unique style for free.
The choir cover lots of well-known music from Queen to Madonna and have
been together since 2010. Some of the choir members have links with
Torrevieja and for this reason have chosen the town for the second year
running as a venue to share their music. They are a not for profit organisation
and they usually perform in the UK for different charities. Currently they have
120 members altogether and last year around 50 made it to the Costa Blanca
to entertain the crowds here too.
