The International Singers
Do you like to sing?
If so, we’d love to meet you! We are a truly happy ‘family’ of around 35 singers from 16 nationalities who range in age from 27 to 80! There’s no need to be able to read music or to have sung in a choir before, though obviously that is always an advantage. We provide all Singers with sheet music and lyrics plus a CD to practice from so, provided you’ve got a good ear for picking up tunes, you’ll do just fine. (There is a seasonal subscription of 20€ which goes towards paying our director and pianist and also the cost of uniforms, music and CDs.) Right now we’re particularly keen to welcome male singers and women with high soprano voices, for, to create a truly balanced choir, we need more of both! (But of course everyone is welcome.)
This season we have a new, talented, energetic and inspiring professional conductor, Toni Gibert, to train us whilst a pianist accompanies us for concerts. Choir practices are held in Andorra la Vella above Fener’s Santa Maria Church, on Thursdays from 8.30pm to 10.30pm with one extra, intensive practice a month on a Saturday from 10.30am – 1.30pm for important training in vocal and breathing techniques plus work on any song that needs extra attention.
The rehearsals are conducted in English/Catalan so this is also a great opportunity to pick up some Catalan on the way. We get to vote on the songs we sing which are in various languages and styles ranging from folk and musicals to gospel and classical. Why not come along to one of our rehearsals and see if you’d like to join us? For more info email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring Clare Allcard on 344 181
