The Royal British Legion Concert Band (RBLCB) will be holding a special memorial concert in Torrevieja on March 29 to commemorate the life of founder member of the band Bill Singleton who died last September. Starting at 7pm in the Centro Cultural Virgen del Carmen, the concert will include a selection of light classical music as well as popular numbers from musicals under the direction of David Last. Accompanying the band will be three choirs, Studio 32 Theatre Group, Spangles Ladies Harmony Chorus, Crescendo Choir as well as Michelle Dance Group from the UK, Francisca Sanper and her Spanish Dancers and the Torrevieja Pipes and Drums.
There will be a performance by the Concert Band resident singer Valerie Lynch and a special guest appearance from popular local entertainer Stevie Spit BEM. Bill Singleton was a well-known figure in local music circles and had helped to entertain for many years before he sadly passed away, so it is expected that a large number of people will wish to enjoy this musical tribute to his memory. Those wishing to attend are invited to make a €6 donation for tickets which can be obtained by calling 696 202 298 or 646 031 584 with proceeds going to local charities including Debra Butterfly Children.
