Harmony College is Coming to Los Alcazares!

Reckless 2015
Do you like to sing – alone in the shower or with friends? Maybe you are in a choir and looking for something a little different to enjoy as a group?

This coming October the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers (SABS) is offering a unique opportunity to singers everywhere to learn a cappella four part harmony in a weekend.

If you like to sing and have never done this before you will love it! If you are an old hand, there will definitely be something new to learn from fabulous International men’s quartet, Reckless, who are being flown in from the UK specially to work and play with us.

Put the date October 2nd to 4th in your diary now and enjoy this special weekend!

We will be based at the Hotel Costa Narejos in the lovely resort of Los Alcázares in Murcia. The Hotel Costa Narejos is by the beach and you can bring your family, and even extend your stay at our very special rate, if you would like to.

Lady and gentlemen singers of all ages will be really welcome and can enjoy a men’s, ladies’ and mixed chorus. You will be learning three a cappella songs during the weekend.

SABS is keen to spread the joy of learning this art form throughout Spain. “We had a wonderful time last year at this event which is open to everyone who likes to sing” said SABS President, Lyn Baines. “It’s a great weekend, with a chance to make new friends as you sing together. Yes, it’s quite hard work but such fun as well and, on the closing afternoon, everyone will get a chance to perform to an invited audience of family and friends.”

Lyn goes on to remind us of the relaxation time “Get to know your new friends better at the ‘afterglows’ at the end of each day. This is a very unique time when people get together to chat and sing.”

Full details of the SABS Harmony College can be found at http://www.sabs.es/cm2/?page_id=3919 or email registrations@sabs.es to find out how you can become involved in this very special weekend. Places are limited and are being snapped up fast, so please make sure you register today; we don’t want you to be disappointed!

SABS – committed to encouraging barbershop singing through Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands.
