FREE Europe Day Concert

 

Crescendo International Choir, who are based in Torrevieja, are presenting a concert in celebration of Europe Day. As it is not convenient to hold the concert on the 9th (the recognised Europe Day) it will take place in the church of the Immaculate Conception, in the main church square by the town hall, after the evening mass on Sunday evening May 10th at approx. 20:45 hrs.

torrevieja-church

The choir will be joined by the Cantabile Singers (an all ladies choir) under the direction of Jennifer Morton. They will also have two items from Soave, an accomplished quartet from within the Crescendo Choir.
To help you decide if you want to go and hear the concert this is the programme of music they groups will be presenting.

Gloria – a rhythmic modern song from America and sung in Latin
Huellas en la Arena – a beautiful habanera
Joshua fight the Battle of Jericho – a negro spiritual song
Locus Iste – (Bruckner) written for the dedication of the votive chapel of Linz cathedral.
Zadok the Priest – Sung at the coronation of every British monarch since 1727
Soave – Panis Angelicus

Cantabile will then sing:
All in the April Evening
Ave Maria (Saint Saens)
Nun’s Chorus
Habanera Divina
The Exodus Song
Easter Hymn
Soave

crescendo-torrevieja

Crescendo will follow this with:
Triumphal Chorus from Aida
Unchained Melody
The Lord’s Prayer
(Malotte) Swingin’ with the Saints, which they hope will send you home with a spring in your step, unless, of course, you would like to hear the choir sing, in these fantastic surroundings, their beautiful arrangement of The Blessing of Aaron.

The front of house team will be at the door with buckets to gratefully receive your donations which will all go to the church organ fund.
Please give generously to this fund. The quicker monies are raised, the sooner we will be able to hear those grand organ sounds again in this city of such a great musical heritage.

**WARNING** Gas Man Con

Bogus gas men have been calling on properties on JDMV today. The men claim to be Repsol engineers, but call on properties randomly, even properties without gas (remember to have gas you must have a contract with them, so if they were official the conmen would know who had and had not got gas). They ask for payment of 42.10€ for each appliance inspected. Be warned, these men are NOT employees of Repsol and the company NEVER turn up unannounced and burglaries have happened after their visits.

repsol

If you have been visited by these men please call Repsol IMMEDIATELY and Neighbourhood Watch.

Remember that Repsol NEVER turn up unannounced. If you are in doubt   DON´T let them into your home and call Repsol, and NOT any number that these people may give you.

Here is a recent article from the Round Town News about this:

Many residents of the area have been approached by three men with a white and silver van claiming to be conducting gas safety checks within the area. People have naively allowed them to enter their homes and burglaries have occurred as a result. These men are bogus. They are NOT Repsol engineers as they are claiming. The van they use is not an official, sign-written Repsol van and the blue shirts that they are wearing are not Repsol uniforms. There are three men described as having ‘dark hair and complexion’ and although they speak Spanish, one of the neighbours believes them not to be Spanish nationals. One man is believed to be around fifty years of age with a thick, dark moustache whilst the other two are younger, perceived to be in their early to mid thirties. A worried elderly lady in Quesada contacted one of her neighbours when she was approached by these men and wisely refused them access to her home. When the neighbour questioned the men they taunted him with a ‘two fingered’ gesture and promptly left. It is believed that this bogus team are operating in the Quesada, Rojales and San Fulgencio areas but may have moved further a field as their profile has been raised in these areas. Please be aware and if in doubt, seek identification and double check with Repsol.

St. George´s Day Festival 2009 in Orihuela Costa

 

St. George is not only the Patron Saint of England but also of a number of other countries as well, such as Portugal, Georgia, Serbia, Russia, Greece and Macedonia. The day is also celebrated to varying degrees throughout Spain, the most notable being in Catalonia where it is known as La Diada de Sant Jordi, which is a Catalan holiday. On this day, Catalan men give their sweethearts and loved ones roses, while women present the men with a book. At the end of the day some 4 million roses and 400,000 books have changed hands.

st-georges-day

Although it is not a national holiday in England, it is seen as the National Day and great efforts have been made during the last few years to further promote the day with special events and general celebration of ‘Englishness.’ 

Now, the Orihuela Costa the Ayuntamiento would like to ‘do their bit’ by organising a special fiesta with market stalls, food, drink and entertainment to celebrate the day. This will take place on the parking area near the Mercadona at Playa Flamenca from the 22 April until the 24 April. This is very much a trial run to see if it will be successful for future years. However bearing in mind the large number of English expats in the Orihuela Costa and nearby regions, there is no reason why it should not be successful and develop into a regular annual fiesta enjoyed by all.

What out – Thieves are about (UPDATED)

A Spanish home owner on JDMV has recently had an outdoor table and a bicycle stolen from his garden. The garden is securely locked with a fairly high fence, but the thieves still managed to get away unnoticed. 

Both the UK & Spanish govenment, and police forces, have warned that with the credit crush we can expect more robberies and thefts.

Please ensure your property is secure, preferably locked, and that you are vigilant at all times.

thief

It has also come to our attention that vandals have been graffiting the solarium’s of at least two properties. Again, please be extra vigilant, lock gates and if you see something suspicious call the police on 112. English speaking operators are ALWAYS there.

Torrevieja’s Tribute to Transport Day – Sunday April 19th

 

Spring is in the air and with that comes the annual Club Torrevieja Tribute to Transport Day. This second year of festivities is guaranteed to be bigger and better than ever. The event is taking place on the new Marina Salinas pier in Torrevieja, just beside the Delfin S61 Submarine and Albatross Customs Boat, which are also open to the public. All are invited and entrance is free.

Along with a display of Classic, Specialist and interesting cars, it’s hoped that there shall also be a turnout from both the Harley Davidson and Scooter community, a rare Trike plus cars that are on the Costa Blanca TV’s film and TV database.

Raising awareness about the problems faced by those with disabilities, parents pushing prams and wheelchair access in the town centre are staff and students from APENEE, who shall be handing out information plus car-door hangers, highlighting the plight of those with disabilities, to gently inform those who inconsiderately park across access ramps, just what they have done.

Registration for the cars and bikes is from 10.30 to 11.00 when the festivities start. At noon, ‘Tuna Femenina’ a group of Medieval Troubadours shall perform followed by a performance from Raquel Pena’s Sevillanas Dance Club.

The cars and bikes shall warm up their engines and set off in a cavalcade through Torrevieja planned for 1.00 pm before heading off for lunch at Restaurante La Estación at 2.00pm, where they shall also mount a further display outside the old railway station.

Fun for all the family is to be had and the more that turn up the merrier the proceedings shall be. Information shall also be available on Club Torrevieja’s Car and Driver awareness program with the introduction of Car Watch. Pick up your copy and stay safe and secure this summer.

If you’ve an interesting or classic car or bike and would like to display it, for free, on the 19th, please contact us or show up on the morning prior to 10.30 am, and they would be happy to include your vehicle.

A website dedicated to users photo´s. This account focuses on Spain and in particular the Torrevieja area. Many pictures are “geotagged” so you can see on a map where the pictures where taken by looking under “Additional Information” and then clicking on the town name after “Taken in.” The site should give you some great ideas for days out.
