Between the 14th and the 20th of May, the XXIII Coral Week of Lagoa takes place, which, in this edition, has a great highlight with the participation of the “Pennsylvania State University Men’s Glee Club”, from the United States of America, as an opening concert to take place at the Carlos do Carmo Auditorium, at 5 pm.
Synopsis: Ideias do Levante and the Municipality of Lagoa organize, from the 14th to the 20th of May 2023, the twenty-third edition of the Coral Week of Lagoa, with the participation of the following formations: The Pennsylvania State University Men’s Glee Club (USA) , Grupo Coral Ossónoba (Faro), Coral Almira (Alcácer do Sal) and Coral Ideias do Levante (Lagoa, Algarve).
The Coral Week of Lagoa is, according to José Carlos Bago d’Uva (mentor of the initial project), a meeting open to the sharing of musical experiences and unforgettable moments of conviviality, it is the annual occasion in which the Municipality of Lagoa sounds “the 4 voices” or (en)/chant of vocal polyphony, through lands “of the Levant”. For José Carlos, this date already represents a milestone in the circuit of choral events in our country, which he is proud to have contributed to its genesis. Many were those who had already “deposited” their voices in the mythical cistern of the Convent of S. José (in the first editions…) and also those who contributed to enhance the city’s auditorium, making their emotions heard through the repertoire choir who work with dedication and enthusiasm.
All activities are recommended for people over 6 years old, limited to the existing capacity, and are free of charge. However, it is necessary to make a timely reservation through an online form via: https://www.ideiasdolevante.info/reservas
