Haddo House Choral and Operatic Society are celebrating their 70th season with a celebration fundraising ‘Singalong’ concert in April.

Their junior section, the Haddo Girl’s and Boy’s Voices, will be joining the adults on stage for a gala concert of the music of Gilbert and Sullivan with sur-titles for the audience to join in with some of the most entertaining music ever written.

Also joining the choirs will be four soloists who are donating their time to help the society fund the 16/17 season and who have sung at Haddo many times before.

Society patron, soprano Pat MacMahon, soprano Catriona Clark, mezzo Louise Mott and tenor Gordon Wilson will sing some of the best numbers from HMS Pinafore, Yeoman of the Guard and the Gondoliers while the main choir with its own soloists will focus on The Mikado, The PIrates of Penzance and Iolanthe.

The concert is on Saturday, April 2, in Haddo House Hall at 7.30pm.

The evening is a much-needed fundraiser for the society who hope to stage a production of La Traviata in April, 2017.

Alongside the concert there will also be a grand prize draw.

Raffle tickets are on sale shortly and can be bought from society members or through inquiries on the website.

The gala evening will be hosted by Mark Stephens, musically accompanied by Drew Tulloch and a string quartet and directed by Alice Dennis.

Tickets are on sale now and selling fast. They can be bought online at www.hhcos.org.uk
