Rotary Silves donates over €3,600 to local schools

Cool Manouche … oh so cool

Last Saturday, Rotary Silves  gave a highly successful concert to a packed house in the Teatro Mascarenhas Gregório in Silves.

The concert featured the well known group Cool Manouche. Playing their very  special gypsy jazz, they entertained the audience royally with classics such as Django Reinhardt’s ‘Minor Swing’ and ‘Nuages’.

“Our thanks go to Câmara de Silves for allowing us to use the theatre,” said organisers.

Rotary Silves donated the proceeds from tickets sales, a total amount of €3,677 to Agrupamento Escolas Silves Sul, headed by Carlos Silva, director of the school group.

The sum will go towards their project to build and equip a sensory room and sensory garden in Armação de Pêra to help students with learning difficulties.
