AECC Torrevieja
The Asociacion Espanola Contra el Cancer, known more commonly as AECC or 'Contra Cancer', is an independent, self funding national charity. The local branch at Torrevieja, which is run by a mixed Spanish and British committee, is situated in Calle Torrevejenses Ausentes, 33, between the Queen Burger Bar and the Plaza Oriente in Torrevieja.

The primary objective is the prevention, by early detection, of three cancers - breast, cervix and prostate. To find out more or to make an appointment for screening, please visit the office, Wednesdays from 09.30. At present we have more appointments available which cuts down waiting time.

The AECC Torrevieja branch is also heavily involved in the running of a Mobile Unit, dedicated to caring for the cancer related terminally ill and also give counselling to family members. The unit, which has three specialists on hand at all times, is available to all living in the Vega Baja region and is controlled by the Oncology Unit of Elche General Hospital. The funding of the unit is the responsibility of the AECC and without the donations from so many generous private individuals, clubs and societies this would be an impossible task.

Being able to treat the terminally ill in their own homes, not only gives them more comfort and the security of knowing they are close to their loved ones, it also releases bed space in the already overloaded Spanish National Health Hospitals.

If anyone has anything that we could use for tombola or raffle prizes these would be much appreciated.

For further information, or to change appointments (Wednesday mornings only) please ring the office on 965 716 679.

Crescendo International Choir - Torrevieja
(Coral Internacional Crescendo)

Crescendo International Choir - Torrevieja

The Crescendo International Choir, under its Musical Director and Arranger, Chas Smith, meets for fun, friendship and for the pleasure of making quality music in convivial company.

The Crescendo International Choir meet on Wednesdays from 6.00 to 8.00pm at Casa Ventura Restaurant, San Luis, Torrevieja.

You will appreciate from the following random selection from our current repertoire that the music we sing is both international and infinitely varied in its content. - We perform the Hallelujah! Chorus with Amazing Grace! We will (in Spanish) search for Footprints in the Sand (Huella en la Arena), or we will sing The Bohemian Rhapsody, Down by the Riverside! We'll Speed Your Journey with The Phantom of the Opera, and Whistle Down the Wind while Swinging with the saints! All part of The Rhythm of Life! And if that isn't varied enough, we promise that if you come with us, You'll Never Walk Alone! What we don't want to be is, Sin Ti, (Without You!).

The sixty-strong Crescendo International Choir membership lives up to its name with members from Spain, Germany, Holland, and Norway; as well as all parts of the UK. We currently have room for more, in all sections, especially basses and mezzo sopranos. Solo musical skill and talent in the spoken word also find outlets in our programmes.

Our Conductor, Chas Smith has a long association with the performance of music; beginning in the North-East England town of Sunderland, where he was brought up in the Salvation Army. It was therefore almost inevitable that as soon as he was big enough to hold a cornet, his father taught him to play. From his first solo performance at the age of five Chas played in venues throughout the UK and in Scandinavia, acquiring his skills as a conductor during three years in the RAF. He has been involved in conducting and directing choirs, bands and operatic societies almost continuously ever since. In July 2004 Chas was approached to ask if he would take on the Musical Directorship of a proposed new mixed choir, which he agreed to do, and so emerged in the autumn of 2004 the Crescendo International Choir, which has grown greatly in size and prestige under the benevolent tyranny of his leadership!

Crescendo were presented with a plaque for their 'Inestimable collaboration' in a concert at the Teatro Virgen del Carmen on Thursday 19th May for the European Culture Festival, celebrating 50th anniversary of the European Union.

Crescendo International Choir in Torrevieja

Can the Crescendo International Choir in Torrevieja sing for you? The Crescendo Choir will travel any distance to perform for charitable or social events of all kinds. (We have not so far been booked for weddings, funerals, or Bar mitzvahs, but all requests will be considered!) For our participation in an event or for a cause that would benefit from good music well sung, contact Concert Manager Mary Mitchell on 965 725 641

If you think you would like to share in harmony, friendship and social activity with us, just come along any Wednesday and say, 'Hello!' Music reading is not an essential requirement (we will instruct where required), but commitment is! If you are not sure if you are a bass or a soprano, then you are in trouble! But come anyway, we'll probably be able to tell!

Crescendo Choir meets every Wednesday evening from 6-8 pm in the "OASIS" bar in Torreta 3.

For more information contact our membership sec. Lesley Rolls 966 719 163

The Gilbert and Sullivan Society in Torrevieja

The Gilbert and Sullivan Society in Torrevieja

A Brief History

The Society was founded in 1995, when in response to a newspaper advertisement, twenty six like minded people came together to produce, for public performance, the operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan. The Societies aim was to produce each year a different operetta. Cyril Willoughby was appointed Musical Director and Joan Rice provided piano accompaniment. Joan retired in 2001 and was succeeded by Susan Brace Guest in 2002. Susan is a professional musician in her own right, playing Viola in both the Gulbenkian Foundation Orchestra in Portugal and the Welsh National Opera Orchestra in Cardiff. Sue has returned to her first love, the Piano to accompany the Society.
In 1999, the Society became a fully registered association with the Valencia authorities. In 2005, the Society celebrated the 10th Anniversary of its foundation.
