Tickets now on sale.
Voices of Cyprus The Big Event
William James quoted, " I don't sing because I'm happy, I'm happy because I sing".
Singing is great therapy and song is one medium that brings people together, regardless of faith, nationalities or any other differences we humans perceive to have. Whether you sing or enjoy listening to those who sing, there is no doubt that it does indeed bring people together. So if you haven't already booked your ticket for the largest musical event in Cyprus, which will take place on Saturday 27th February, then you should be calling the hotline now.
It is to be hosted at one of the largest venues in Paphos, The Base Events, on the Airport Road, who are kindly offering their venue free of charge.
It doesn't matter what your preference genre of music taste you have, you will hear it on this night when, not one, not two but five choirs come together and showcase their individual talents.
It has taken 5 choirs over 6 months to bring this extravaganza together with the help of many local companies. The main sponsors are Moving Earth Construction, Akme Securities & Arbok International with other sponsorship coming from Gabriel's Taverna, Kouklia, Bio Homes & My Mall.
The organisers would also like to thank local business's who have kindly donated prestigious raffle prizes to help these wonderful choirs raise more for their chosen charities, which will all be equally split from the proceeds.
The choirs taking part & the charities they represent are:
Harmony, Cyprus Kidney Association
Island Blend, PASYKAF Limassol
Orpheans Singers, The Friends Hospice
Paphos Zingers, Cancer Patients Support Group/PASYKAF Paphos
Phoenix Singers, Theotokos Foundation
Colloquially they are known as Voices of Cyprus.
With the tickets priced at only €10.00, this has to be the best night of entertainment offering great value for money.
The enigmatic and talented Simone Swift from Rock FM will be Master, (or is that Mistress) of Ceremonies on the evening. There are a few guest surprises along the way adding to the evenings entertainment.
No expenses are taken from any of the choirs involved, they all give their time and bear their own costs, allowing more funds to be raised.
Transport can be arranged from Peyia, Limassol & Polis for only 14.00 pp. Contact Ticket Hotline 97666907 or 96818066 for tickets and further information. Ticket sales are kindly sponsored by Kendall & Morrelli with media sponsors Rock FM.
Bar open at 6 pm, show starts 7 pm.
Each choir have chosen very different songs to perform on the night and all bring their individual and unique qualities into their performances. The Grand Finale will be astonishing when all 5 choirs take the stage and sing together.
If you have a set mind on what you think a choir or singing group is, then come along and experience the differences in each group.
This is one night you will not want to miss
Martin Luther quoted, " As long as we live , there is never enough singing." He wasn't wrong!

Less than a week to go to this very different event, tickets have sold well, and so if you want a ticket contact the hotline soon.
97666907.

This will be the inaugural event and is proving so successful, that there is already a waiting list of choirs for the 2017 event including choirs from abroad and a very special and different 'choir'

Not sure if anyone from this forum came, but the room was packed, far better then we could have possibly hoped for when we started planning this event 10 months ago, we hoped to have raised a pretty penny for the local charities. Lots of brilliant feedback, with all the choirs performing wonderfully, music to suit all tastes.
