A series of musical events are planned from June to September
From June 10 to September 2, the programme will feature intimate music sessions encompassing jazz, fado, classical rhythms, Latin melodies, samba, bossa nova, blues, and world music. There will also be two tribute concerts honouring Aretha Franklin and ABBA.
Starting this month, Vale do Lobo will host a series of intimate music sessions at the Tennis Academy, held every fortnight on Saturdays at 8pm.
“These sessions will feature top-quality artists and musical groups, providing captivating performances for all ages as the sun sets. With a bar service available and the option of dinner reservations at the Ténis Café, these exclusive concerts are the perfect way to enjoy a summer afternoon with family or friends,” organisers say.
The concerts will take place in a newly developed lounge area overlooking the tennis courts and surrounding pinewood.
“This relaxed and informal concept appeals to all family members and ages. The diverse musical programme showcases exceptional quality formations and artists, including samba, fado, jazz, soul, classical, and pop,” they add.
Kicking off the summer intimate concerts programme on Saturday, June 10 is the Sunset Samba by Sambambas – Roda de Samba, which promises to offer an evening of “pure rhythm and musicality, engaging everyone present in a unique sunset setting.”
This will be followed on June 24 by “Strings in Harmony,” featuring the talented TerraSul duo and “creating a melodious symbiosis of string harmony that pushes the boundaries of style and form.”
On July 8, renowned fado singer Carla Pires, accompanied by André M. Santos and João Vaz, will perform her most emblematic songs in the “Echoes of Fado When the Sun Goes Down” concert.
Next on the agenda is the highly anticipated Aretha Franklin Tribute open-air concert which will take place on July 22, featuring Yolanda Sikara and her Think band.
In August, the intimate and open-air concerts will continue with the “Jazz Evening with a Latin Flavour” by João Frade trio on August 5. João Frade, Michael Olivera, and Yarel Hernandez will “deliver a memorable jazz performance filled with talent and musicality”.
The “World Music Fusion Under the Stars” by Plasticine will close the intimate music sessions on August 19, offering an “infectious and unforgettable show of rhythm and sound.”
Last but not least, Vale do Lobo will host a grand ABBA tribute sunset concert on September 2 at 7.30pm on the golf course. “Abba Inferno band will deliver electrifying performances of ABBA’s greatest hits, creating an enchanting experience for all attendees,” organisers say.
“This year’s summer events program at the resort is an integral part of Vale do Lobo’s 60th anniversary celebrations, which reinforce the image and commitment to excellence as a formula for success in providing a unique and iconic lifestyle,” they add.
