The Barbees (Silver Medal Chorus)

Some 300 barbershop aficionados took Benalmádena, Málaga by storm when they arrived for their fifth annual convention last weekend. This is the second time that the Spanish Association of Barbershop Singers (SABS) has based its event on the Costa del Sol.

“Our delegates come from all over Europe, and we are keen to establish convention venues with excellent travel connections and accommodation.” said SABS Vice President, Lyn Baines. “This is the second time that we have hosted this international event in Benalmádena; it’s a great venue and we always receive such a warm welcome”.

Delegates were based in the Sunset Beach Club Hotel, with shows and contests taking place in the Moonlight Lounge at the Sunset Beach Club, where SABS also held its second international quartet contest.

Spangles, from Los Alcázares, Murcia, became gold medal champions of Spain and Portugal for the second time, also sweeping the board by winning all three trophies for top scores in music, presentation and singing. “We’re over the moon with our win,” said Gail Grainger, Spangles’ Musical Director “and to get the top scores is testimony to the hard work that the chorus has put in over the past twelve months.”

Madrid ladies’ chorus, The Barbees, won the silver medal and Southern Sound, from Fuengirola, Málaga, took the bronze medal.

In the quartet contest, Fourmidables from Torrevieja, Alicante were crowned Gold Medal Champions for the first time, having won silver in the last two contests. The silver medal went to Hanfris from Barcelona and the bronze medal was won by Cleftomania from the Algarve in Portugal. Hullabaloo from Torrevieja won the Senior Quartet Award and Fénix Quartet from Los Alcázares won the Highest Scoring Ladies’ Quartet Award.

The international quartet contest saw Tone-acity walk away with the gold medal and Simply 4 win the silver medal. Both quartets are from the UK.

The next SABS annual convention is scheduled for Calpe, Alicante from 3-6 April 2014 at the Gran Hotel Sol y Mar, right by the sea, with the national and international contests being held in the Casa de Cultura in Calpe.
