Wednesday 3rd November 2021 – PRESS RELEASE with Mike Smith
The Centro Artístico Musical de Xàbia (CAM) kicks off this year’s celebrations honouring Santa Cecilia with some new faces and, as is tradition, the musical group will officially welcome these new musicians who have joined them during the last two years since the pandemic prevented them doing so in 2020.
A total of 21 new faces for 2021 are officially welcomed into the band – Lucia de la Fuente del Toro, Arantxa Ribes Sorribes, Bea Pastor Morató, Regina Soler Andrés; Elisa Navas Congosto, Ainhoa Buigues Puig, Mar Cholbi De Lamo, Raúl Blasco Beltrán, Marcos Serrat Espasa, Adrián Climent Castell, Joel Cruz Vázquez, María Mayor Aranda and Pau Cantos Sales, whilst two more join the orchestra, Allison Tamara Castillo Bermúdez and Sukayna Eirianydd Al-Ghabban.
