Music Fundraiser concert by the University of Alicante Choir in benefit of Proyecto Hombre

Alicante, 22 December 2016

Translated by María Miró Maestre

UA's performing arts programme for the second semester will start with a choir recital whose funds will go to a great cause. You will have the chance to enjoy a Music Fundraiser concert by the University of Alicante Choir on Friday 20 January, at 8 p.m. at the UA Auditorium. Tickets are €5 and all funds will go to Fundación Noray Proyecto Hombre Alicante, a non-profit organisation devoted to helping people with drug addictions and other addictive disorders that the University of Alicante has been supporting for a long time.

The concert will have the special collaboration of the singer and composer from Alicante Javier Robles,who will join the University of Alicante Choir in some of the songs. Javier Robles is the author of the project White on Black, a show that will be held at the UA Auditorium on 15 February. Robles has a solid technical education in both classical and light music. He studied light singing at the Creative Music School in Madrid and classical singing and piano at the London College of Music.

The repertoire to be interpreted by the UA Choir will include a varied repertoire with different musical traditions that will range from popular songs, with classics such as El cant dels ocells or El Rossinyol and several pieces from essential operas such as La Traviata or Madama Butterfly. Moreover, the performance will also feature some spiritual songs such as Jericho or pieces by Bach or Beethoven.
