An “Affair To Remember” Charity Concert

BY RICHARD FORDThis is not about an affair we wish to remember from our early elicit love life, but an event that is to remind us of the affair we have with charity, our simple acts of giving that helps our fellow “kababayans”  back in the Philippines.

Held  last 13th May, 2017 at the Marconi Club in Bossley Park, the show reminds us of  the 1957 Hollywood Movie  of the same title  starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, which looks at the many love songs or theme songs from various musical productions.

This is a fundraising event to build a concrete floor and  roof for the Catholic Chapel in San Sebastian Barangay in Ramon, Isabela province, Philippines. The funds raised from tonight’s event will go towards APCO Inc.s  Humanitarian, Emergency and Livelihood Projects (HELP)..

The concert  featured Linda Trinidad who is a Soprano, Marcus Rivera a Baritone, a veteran of various stage productions like Miss Saigon, and The Lion King. With Brian Lorenz who is a Tenor and a talented multi-award winner of some 8 awards. When put together all three voices blended so well, that one can say it really  “An Affair to Remember”. The audience was provided with an array of numbers from Italian, Filipino and English Songs, like   :Granada”, “Quando,Quando” and Poky and Bess song “Tonight,Tonight.”

The band that provided such excellent music to accompany the three singers was Anthony Vadala’s Band.

The Filipinas Dancers, comprised of Emma Braceros, Dian Ford, Juliet Vella and Aresna Frost provided the two backup dance acts for Linda Trinidad’s Filipino Songs. The Production was put together with the help of Flagcom members Charles Chan, Albert Prias and Michelle Baltazar, with thanks.

To have not attended the night would be to miss out on a truly spectacular night that is truly “An Affair to Remember.”BY RICHARD FORD
