UA Choir concerts

In December, the Choir of the University of Alicante, directed by Àngel Lluís Ferrando, will hold a series of concerts entitled “Christmas is a time for music” in the UA Auditorium, in Gran Vía shopping centre, in Elda and in Orihuela.

According to Ferrando, this year the UA Choir will perform songs from different traditions and in different languages, in order to show the importance of music at this time of the year and its ability to bring people from different places together.

The UA Choir belongs to the Office of the Vice President for Culture, Sports and Language Policies and gives members the opportunity to not only enhance their musical knowledge, but also show their progress in concerts and academic ceremonies. The choir’s main objective is to provide students with a comprehensive experience including musical, social and cultural training. This academic year, the UA Choir has more than 60 members who will perform in these concerts and in the traditional spring and summer shows.

Also included in the Choir’s activities for this year is a charity concert in collaboration with NGO Proyecto Hombre, which will be held on campus on 9 December. Entrance to every concert is free, limited to seating capacity.
