ParaSol Singers Choir changes its name to CantoLibre
After six years performing as the ParaSol Singers, the Estepona / Manilva based choir has changed its name to CantoLibre. The new name means Free Singing and reflects the choir’s spirit and repertoire, which now ranges from classical to pop and includes our ever popular Christmas repertoire in both English and Spanish. The choir has performed at many local venues and is pleased to share our love of singing with, and contribute to, the local community.
Although our common language is English we have many nationalities in the choir and we always welcome new members. The only requirements are enthusiasm for singing and a commitment to regular rehearsals. Ability to read music is not required.
We rehearse on Wednesday evenings at a venue between Sabinillas and Estepona. We shall be creating a Facebook page but in the meantime for more information please contact [email protected] or call 692 558 041.
