Teresa Albero says goodbye to Ars Nova and receives the warmth and gratitude of the public

Tuesday 21st December 2021 – XÀBIA AL DÍA with Mike Smith

Last Sunday, the Grup Polifònic Ars Nova de Xàbia offered one of its most exciting concerts. On the one hand, the soprano Teresa Albero, director of the group for the last five years, formally said goodbye to her work at the head of the local choir and, on the other, it presented the group that makes up Petit Ars, the new branch in which Ars Nova aims to instill a taste and love for music.

A loud and long ovation was afforded to Albero and made the walls of the church of San Bartolomé rumble. And it is not nothing. The soprano leaves the formation at its sweetest moment since, throughout this last five years, Ars Nova has seen its expansion, incorporating new members to its ranks and demonstrating its artistic capacity beyond Xàbia, La Marina Alta and indeed Spain.

A large part of the credit for that success goes to Albero’s eagerness and tenacity since she discovered the great potential that the group has. Proof of this was the stamp that was immortalized on the altar of the church. On the one hand, a uniformed group fully satisfied and proud of everything learned and achieved together with Albero and, on the other, the small group of great voices for the future. In their midst, the woman in white who interpreted F. Poulenc’s heartbreaking work ‘La Voix Humaine‘.

The director showed her gratitude to each and every one of the members who have been part of Ars Nova and to her board of directors. She recalled the importance of teamwork and highlighted the support received by the Department of Culture. The mayor of Xàbia, José Chulvi, highlighted the passion with which the soprano works and the special claim that she makes of the lyric in the area, as well as the visibility it grants to women in the musical field.
