Coral Clásica Javiense, an international choir in Jávea, has just started its new season of rehearsals for the spring of 2018. We’re a hard-working, friendly group, who would eagerly welcome new members. All voices are welcome, but we have a special need for tenors!
Choir practice is held each Friday from 4pm to 6pm at the Instituto Musical, Avda. Juan Carlos 1, in Jávea/Xábia.
Plans for this season are still in flux. At present we are learning some lovely musical settings by the composer Francisco Vila of poems by the iconic Andalusian poet Frederico García Lorca.
This will be our second season with musical director Asunción Tarrassó. Asunción is the cellist of the Orchestra of the Marina Alta (OMA), and is also engaged in further training as a choir mistress at the university Carlos III in Madrid. The warmth, skill, and energy of Asunción’s teaching style makes each rehearsal a pleasure for us.
The choir is based in Jávea, but our members come from all over Marina Alta, and even the Marina Baixa, from Altea in the south to Ràfol d’Almúnia in the north. We have an interesting cross-section of nationalities - German, British, Dutch, Spanish, Swiss, and one solitary American (this writer).
New singers are always welcome. Those who would just like to be occasional guests may visit and observe if they like. Choir members need a basic ability to read music and should have some experience of choir work. However, don’t hold back if your experience is limited. This is a learning environment, not a competition. If you can carry a tune and love to sing, this could be your chance.
