The Harrow Apollo Male Choir proudly presents Songs from Stage and Screen

The majority of HAMC’s concerts are performed free of charge in aid of good causes. To enable this to continue, one annual autumn concert is put on by the organisation to raise money for HAMC (Registered Charity Number 1117134) .

This year, on Sunday 8th October, HAMC returned to the Watersmeet Theatre, which has special memories because it is where both the 70th and 75th Anniversaries were celebrated. The Watersmeet has a capacity of 500 seats. Sadly, a full house was not achieved but the audience did fill the auditorium with warm and enthusiastic applause for each number.

Our special guest, soprano soloist, Abigail Harris sang “And This Is My Beloved” from Kismet and “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man” from Show Boat in the first half; followed by two numbers from Carousel in the second half: “Mister Snow” and “If I Loved You”. Abigail runs many choirs so we were grateful that she had space in her diary and was able to appear with us once again to make this occasion so special.

David Heasman both conducted the choir and performed two solos: “Empty Chairs And Empty Tables” from Les Miserables and “Oh What a Beautiful Morning” from Oklahoma. It was the first time that his grandchildren, who were in the audience, had heard him perform so this also made it an extra special occasion.

Accompanist: Avis Gerry

£2,000 was raised for choir funds which, along with members subscriptions helps to cover the cost of music, learning and development resources for the choristers, remuneration for the music team and administration costs incurred by the organisation. This supplements the annual subscriptions paid by members, which do not cover the choir’s costs alone.
