Concert at São Lourenço

A free concert by the São Lourenço Singers led by Joyce Whitelaw will be taking place on July 24 at the Cultural Centre near the historic São Lourenço Church in Almancil, starting at 6pm.
The music will consist of a variety of jazz and classical favourites, including songs such as ‘Lullaby of Broadway’, ‘Fly me to the Moon’, ‘Smoke Gets in Your Eyes’, ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’ and ‘Younger Than Springtime’.
The São Lourenço Singers was formed in January 2013. The choir consists of nearly 30 singers from various European countries and it meets weekly for practice and fun. Joyce creates all the vocal harmonies tailored to the mix, interests and abilities of the singers.
Joyce was born in Glasgow and graduated from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama with a dual degree: B.A. in Vocal and Piano Performance. Later she went on to obtain a diploma in Secondary Music Education from St. Andrews College of Education.
Joyce lived in San Francisco for 20 years where she taught music and was involved in a number of significant projects that included composing, management and performance.
She has been living in Portugal for the past six years.
