The Municipal Choir "Ménade" of Las Torres de Cotillas: eleven years giving voice to a town (06/11/2018)

In the year in which Real Madrid rose as champion of the Spanish Football League, in the year in which he died the tenor Luciano Pavarotti, in the year in addition to the seventh book of the Harry Potter saga or the tramway of the City of Murcia was starting to work; in Las Torres de Cotillas, an illusion, a dream, a desire became reality.

A trip began, an adventure with a satisfactory and happy argument.

In 2007 Las Torres de Cotillas witnessed a special milestone in the field of Culture, launched an event featuring more than fifty men and women who decided to embark on a collective journey that, blessed by success, many kilometers of travel, multitude of positive experiences, magnificent concerts and countless applauses and ovations has led them to a growing projection in the life not only of our town and Region of Murcia but beyond it when crossing borders.

Hours and hours of rehearsal, time of delivery, of love to chisel in art neat voices full of feeling and musicality, of spirit and lyrics, of vital force and melody, ..., to that pulse, to that beat of overflowing hearts of stimulation and overcoming the philosophy of the Coral "Ménade" of Las Torres de Cotillas, making that, as the remembered American singer-songwriter Kurt Cobain said, "music is synonymous with freedom, to sing whatever you want and how you want, always be good and have passion because first of all music should always be the food of love. "

And we know it well Torreño and Torrena when we have seen the performances of our already universal Coral "Ménade" since it began to walk with firm step back in 2007.

A story, an epic like that achieved by our polyphonic ensemble of Las Torres de Cotillas must begin to be narrated from its genesis and so I will do so.

Throughout these eleven years of experience, the "Ménade" Choir has become firmly established in Las Torres de Cotillas culture, achieving an interpretive quality worthy of praise and jumping to the limits of many stages of our country.

These goals have been possible with the delivery of men and women under the masterful baton of its director Pedro Víctor Meseguer, exemplary people, endearing that I carry in my heart as friends and as a family even.

In 2007, a group of torreño torreño of good met with the healthy desire to create something important, to start a mission, as was to train in music, learn the beauty of it to show it, to bring it closer to society, to his neighbors, and they have been getting it ever since.

For eleven years they have been heard with their own name in the Torrena culture, they have made a one-way and not a return itinerary that represents a dream made substance.

The Choir "Ménade" of Las Torres de Cotillas is one of the great social projects, but at the same time cultural and artistic that have come together with remarkable success and importance in recent years in our town.

Our polyphonic tower is the culmination of this Culture out of town because it is the own and enthusiastic decision of a set of simple neighbors from which this already renowned institution emerges.

An educated people is a free people and both values ​​personify them perfectly, clearly what is today the Coral "Ménade", a successful model of popular culture, participatory, open and clear horizons that supposes reference, example of those not few good things that are done in this cozy, enterprising and Leal Villa de Las Torres de Cotillas.

"Ménade", is also in its condition of flagship initiative a great reality in the context of ambassadors of the good name of our municipality wherever the components of "Ménade" go, we are in front of a large family fully involved in something lasting.

That these lines serve as tribute and gratitude to this Coral that has known how to give luster and enhancement to Las Torres de Cotillas for eleven years.

A reality set in motion with dedication, with infinite desire, with the will and the constant support of institutions and entities of our town such as the City Council, as well as commercial collectives and companies that represent the thrust and progress of Las Torres de Cotillas.

With that added accolade, the Coral "Ménade" is shown to our town, to our Region and to many corners of Spain in many ways throughout the year, in a series of activities, concerts that mark the most famous dates of our town, whether they are their patron saint festivities, Christmas, Holy Week or events such as the Choir Encounter set in the month of December on the level of human excellence with the award of the "Ménade" Prize to figures of the municipality that have stood out in of Culture.

And this expression of the best Torrena Culture, of Culture of quality and with capital letters constitutes, like music as its main ingredient, a treasure of incalculable value.

Because it is enviable this Coral "Ménade" that, throughout more than a decade of exciting caravan of harmony, coexistence, primordial brotherhood of its members, has taken by many scenarios the soul of Torrena contained in the happy notes, bars and melodies of a varied repertoire of pieces of all times and styles tested with determination but at the same time with the harmony of a group of neighbors who enjoy the recognition of our people.

We are before a Coral that makes Culture a healthy expression of the people, that is what has the most value of everything, which shows at all times and places the strength, the freshness of the culture, of the Torrena soul.

Because the Coral "Ménade" is aware of its values ​​and strengths.

From here I want to proclaim what this polyphonic group is today and what it aspires to be tomorrow, making it grow and consolidate even more if it fits something that belongs to the entire town of Las Torres de Cotillas.

Because the Coral "Ménade" does, as the German philosopher Schopenahuer said, that "with music all feelings return to their pure state, making the world that, music come true".
