FUENGIROLA´S Hotel IPV Palace & Spa was the setting for an extraordinary concert by Collegium Musicum´s Orchestra and Choir on Sunday.
The group joined forces with the Camerata Singers of Sotogrande, bringing together over 90 singers and 45 orchestral musicians, who performed four works.
The close of the evening was an arrangement of part of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony which was commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society of London for £50. The last movement of this innovative masterpiece, “Ode to Joy”, has been adopted as the anthem of the European Union.
The group´s next concert is next Sunday at 8pm 2017 in the Iglesia Nuestra Senora de la Merced in Sotogrande. For more details call 952475840 or 659111526 or visit www.colmus.org
