The Cultural Association of Lagoa, Ideias do Levante (Algarve), in partnership with the municipality of Lagoa (Algarve), will organize the 20th edition of Semana Coral de Lagoa (Lagoa Choir Week,, a non-competitive choir festival that will take place within the Council of Lagoa from the 5th up until the 19th of May. The 2018 edition will feature 6 talented groups: Coral Polifónica Ecijana (Écija, Espanha), Grupo Coral Adágio (Portimão), Grupo Coral de Lagos, Coro Atlântico Juvenil (Sines), Coro do Sol (Portimão), and Coral Ideias do Levante (Lagoa, Algarve).

Each year, for one week, singing sweeps through Lagoa, and voices from all places unite in a harmonious feast of melodies and emotions. The Choir Week of Lagoa is already a reference in the panorama of Algarvian choir festivals. It began as the tiny cry of a strong and determined child, then grew with school songs learnt and sung, and now has become a searcher of new sounds and experiences in polyphonic choir singing. Each year it yearns to go farther, to innovate, to dare to fly even higher. Each year, the Choir Week of Lagoa is bigger and more mature. And with it, the singers who participate have also grown at the musical level. Many friendships have been firmed. Many musical ties have been formed. Many songs have been found. According to Roberto Estorninho (executive producer), this is the secret of music, the same musical beat that regulates all hearts, "and this is why we love music - it unites us, and it makes our hearts beat in one single rhythm." 

The Choir Week of Lagoa is, according to its first mentor, José Carlos Bago d’Uva, a conference open to the sharing of musical experiences and of unforgettable moments; it is the time of the year when Lagoa sings “in four voices” the (en)chantment of vocal polyphony across the lands of the Levante.

The opening concert with Coral Polifónica Ecijana (Écija, Espanha), Grupo Coral Adágio (Portimão), and Coral Ideias do Levante (Lagoa, Algarve), will be held in Porches Principal Church on May 5, at 17:30. Grupo Coral de Lagos and Coral Ideias do Levante (Lagoa, Algarve) will perform together on May 9, at Convento S. José (Lagoa), around 21:00. The closing concertt with Grupo Coral de Lagos, Coro Atlântico Juvenil (Sines), Coro do Sol (Portimão), and Coral Ideias do Levante (Lagoa, Algarve) will be held on May 13, at Lagoa's Municipal Auditorium, at 17h00.
