SUMMER SING-A-LONG

Caribbean colours and rhythms welcomed summer on May 31st at Torrevieja Christian Fellowship church. The TCF Singers arrived on stage first to create a rainbow of colour. Then Crescendo International Choir surprised us with a new outfit – sparkly red jackets giving way to colourful scarves creating the impression that each lady was wearing her own individual rainbow, these colours represent Crescendo’s own logo. The men wore various coloured ties. Pastor Roy got in on the act with a Caribbean shirt looking as though he had embarked on an exotic cruise. Forget sombre churches – this was all about colour and joy, outfits and songs to uplift and propel us into summer.

Crescendo opened with Martin Luther King’s word ‘I Have A Dream’ set to music and a song telling us to smile. We all joined in with ‘White Cliffs of Dover’. I reckon some of our kith and kin who live close to and beyond those white cliffs would appreciate a hamper full of our summer sun. The sentiment of the words of this old song “There’ll be peace ever after when the world is free” still unfulfilled and very apt. TCF Singers regaled us with 2 gospel songs to remind the audience that actually with God, all things are possible.

After a united rendition of ‘Amazing Grace’, Crescendo went Spanish with ‘Besame Mucho’ and English with ‘Memories from ‘Cats’. Then we all reiterated that we have choices in life and sang ‘My Way’. Pastor Roy took us to Wales where we listened to the authentic Welsh words of ‘Myfanwy’ in story and song followed in contrast by a trip to the USA with the Elvis song ‘Old Shep’. Be assured that this Pastor is the antithesis of “stuffy”. The audience’s turn came next with Elvis’s favourite hymn, “How Great Thou Art”.

Crescendo practiced their Spanish again with ‘Guantanamera’ and the Habaneras rhythm of ‘Torrevieja’ followed by the Barcelona Olympic song ‘Friends for Life’. TCF Singers regaled us with ‘Behold The Lamb’ before we belted out ‘We’ll Meet Again’.

After the raffle we flew first class to the African sun and ‘Siyahamba’ sang us out to the words ‘I am singing in the light of God’.

You can view Crescendo’s new rig out and listen to their songs in a different church surroundings at Benijofar square on Saturday June 8th at 8.15 p.m. at a free concert.

This will be an opportunity to thank Jose Alberto for standing in as a very able accompanist for tony who has been in far off lands studying the harpsichord. Tony will return with crescendo after the summer. Have a good one!
