.
We are a group of 20 or so ladies who enjoy singing. We rehearse every Monday and Wednesday evening preparing music for all occasions.


Originally we performed 2 concerts a year --one May/June and the other at Christmas. Then the Anglican Chaplain, the Rev. Robert Ellis, asked us to prepare an evening of religious music for Good Friday. The first year we did Stainer's "Crucifixion" arranged for female voices and subsequently the Faure "Requiem", but the highlight so far has been performing the Passion and Easter music from "Messiah" which we performed 3 years ago and are planning to repeat in 2010. For that we imported men to sing the tenor and bass parts and have "hung on" to them for our Easter concerts.

About
Us

The Christmas Concert is not your usual "Carol Concert" -- it is impossible to describe!  Many people say that their Christmasses begin with our Concert and come year after year !
We always sell out completely and it's great fun!!

So now we have 3 concerts a year - the monies raised going either to the Church or to Charity.
All the work in rehearsal is worth it.

Another innovation with our choir is the "Annual Cruise".  We had been talking about going further afield and singing but on investigation discovered that Flights, Hotels and Coaches etc. would have made the cost prohibitive -- then the idea of a cruise came up !!

The first year we sailed around the Mediterranean and sang in churches in Naples and in Florence. Then, the next year (this year), we sang at a service in Rome. It was magical.  On the cruise ship itself we ran Choral Workshop and offered it to all passengers. We ended up with a mixed choir of about 40 !!  More great fun.

And then there are our weddings....

We really enjoy singing at weddings. As most of the ladies don't work we can offer a choir of 12 or so on any day of the week.  We have sung all over the Island. In fact we say that through weddings we have seen parts of the Island you would not normally visit ! We have sung in tiny churches in pretty villages and huge churches in hard-to-find places !!
No matter -- off we go and sing our hearts out.

Many of our bookings come via the Anglican Chaplain of the Island.

and their website is   http://www.anglican-mallorca.org

However we also sing at Catholic weddings and can provide the sung parts of the Mass if wanted.

If we are booked early enough we can learn songs that are special to a bride and groom (as long as we can find good arrangements)
