"...I went to a rehearsal one night to try it out and now have been with the club for over 20 years."
"With The Apollo Club I can accomplish two goals. I like group singing in a serious, but relaxed atmosphere, and I want to share my enjoyment of singing with others."
"I enjoy the singing opportunity [the Club] provides. The rehearsals are at least as, if not more enjoyable than the concerts."
“I am so pleased to have found a group of men with whom it was so easy to become accepted, doing something I have always loved."
The Apollo Club works for busy men with a passion for music but with schedules that prevent them from joining other choruses. Our rehearsals and most of our performances are held on Monday evenings between September and June. By cycling songs in and out of our repertoire and varying what we practice, we are able to learn and polish the pieces while continuing to keep our business/professional commitments that unfortunately conflict from time to time.
We present a large number of concerts each year that consist of popular pieces, light classical, theme based songs including love songs and spirituals, barbershop quartet music, Broadway show tune medleys, classic glee club numbers, as well as occasionally, a few folk songs with foreign lyrics. Our success can be attributed to the warm harmonies and dynamic contrasts that are characteristics of men’s voices; qualities that are regularly noted and appreciated as we perform, notably at the many prominent retirement venues throughout greater Boston.
The club is always looking for new members. We rehearse Monday evenings at the Harvard Musical Association, 57A Chestnut Street, on Boston’s Beacon Hill. If you have ever thought about joining a men's chorus, please come to a rehearsal and see how you like it, on a Monday evening from 7 to 9 in the fall until Thanksgiving, or after the holidays (anytime in January works); otherwise we’re on the road! Complete and send the form below if you want to give us a “heads up,” or just stop by when it’s convenient.
