|A "Muy Grande" Experience In Spain For All|
Smith Chamber Singers Return From 9th Concert Tour
The Smith College Chamber Singers perform in Motril, Spain.
In May, the Smith College Chamber Singers, under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Hirsh, returned home from their ninth concert tour with Classical Movements. The trip throughout central and southern Spain included stops in Madrid, Toledo, Alcalá de Henares, Córdoba, Granada, Torremolinos, and Motril.
The Chamber Singers
Toledo, Spainperformed four concerts that were well-received by Spanish audiences, including two concerts that were performed in collaboration with local choirs. Performance repertoire included classical works by Tomas Luis de Victoria and Giuseppe Verdi as well as contemporary arrangements of "Shenandoah," "Ezekiel Saw De Wheel," and "The Water Is Wide."
In addition to such outstanding performances, the Smith College Chamber Singers were also able to enjoy the sunny Costa del Sol and the historical and cultural achievements of the Alhambra, the Mezquita de Córdoba, and Madrid's city center.
|"We performed in beautiful spaces, in some cases with wonderful local singers, and always to wildly appreciative audiences. The people we met were warm and friendly and we were well received everywhere. We saw some of the most amazing sights in Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, and Granada. It was every bit as good as all of our previous eight tours with Classical Movements."|
