Three days and two nights of playing mafia, dancing by the lake, and losing our voices from singing too much (never!) … and we’re all still alive with hoarser voices and instruments a shade more worn out.
Camp was a fantastic highlight for our second semester. A big thank you to all who made it, and all who helped out to make it a successful event. A particular mention to our social events rep Sandy and the rest of the committee.
For those who couldn’t make it this time round, there’s always next semester!
On Friday, May 29th we held the annual Twilight Concert, held again in the beautiful Rosina Auditorium of Abbotsford Convent. We were able to raise over $300 for the International Medical Corps, who are working in disaster relief in Nepal!
Here are some photo highlights from the night; thanks to Dulini, Himali and Sandy for taking them!
“By the light (by the light, by the light) of the silvery moon (of the silvery mooooooooon) I want to see Apolloooo (I want to see Apollooooo) in concert before June (in concert before June)”
Well guess what? YOU CAN!!!
Apollo’s Twilight concert is to be held on FRIDAY 29TH MAY 2015 at 7PM! Count on having a magical time while the stars come out, experiencing our funkalicious beats, sweet harmonies and jazzed up tunes!
Taking the stage at Rosina Auditorium, Abbotsford Convent, will be Acapollo, Choir, Jazz Band, Fusion Band and Strings, as well as a variety of guest acts.
And although you probably didn’t need another reason to come, here is one more!
By buying a ticket to the concert you will also be supporting an urgent cause – proceeds will go towards aiding health workers assisting in the recovery after the Nepal earthquakes! For more information, please visit internationalmedicalcorps.org.
Support philanthropy, support live music, support your friends and prepare for a memorable night out!
P.S. For anyone who doesn’t understand the opening line, look up Doris Day – “By the Light of the Silvery Moon” 😉
Once again, Apollo will be holding our bi-annual camp during the mid-semester break! We are going to St John’s Ambulance Recreation Camp, Wesburn, from Tuesday April 7th to Thursday 9th April, which is immediately after Easter Monday. Camp is a great chance to get to know all the other people in Apollo, through fun, games, food, music, and maybe a bit of actual rehearsing too – we do have concerts coming up! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for booking information.
Wew! Apollo just had their first EVER Casual Jam session, which gathered an eclectic group of people with different musical interests together to play whatever they felt like playing! We had some Coldplay, a bossa nova, Blink 182, a mellow jam with some Arabian influences and a beautiful banjo solo.
If you missed the Jam, never fear- the next one will be in Week 4 or 5, just around the corner! Hope to see you there, and thanks to all that came today!
Orientation Week was a huge success for Apollo, with the club practically doubling in size since 2014!
Our performance on Thursday of the Clubs Carnival showcased the talent of the Club, starting with a snazzy opening by Fusion Band, Choir soothed the crowd with their harmonies and Acapollo brought it home with some well known songs! Check out our YouTube video below (coming soon) for all the highlights.
The stall we had on Friday attracted a lot of musicians eager to be part of what is going to be an amazing year. Our committee provided helpful to talk to, and passers by were able to have a quick jam on our keyboard, soothing the frustrated people in other sign-up lines.
If you didn’t get a chance to speak to anyone or want to know more about Apollo, make sure you check out our About Us and Ensembles pages for more info, or contact us directly for more info.
