Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra got disco fever
Beethoven took a back seat to Boney M and the BeeGees on 14 June when KBB Music presented APO Does Disco at the ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre.
Celebrating the enduring classics of the era that made platform shoes and leisure suits a dance floor staple, the APO were joined by singers Annie “More Than a Woman” Crummer, Laughton “Le Freak” Kora and Esther “Three Times a Lady” Stephens for this one-night-only disco inferno.
Conducted by David “Hot Stuff” Kay, APO Does Disco reimagining all the electrifying hits of the ‘70s with full orchestral arrangements, with songs including ‘Blame it on the Boogie’, ‘Stayin’ Alive’, ‘By the Rivers of Babylon’, ‘Hot Stuff’ and ‘It’s Raining Men’
APO sourced every mirror ball in town to transform the Aotea Centre’s ASB Theatre into a Boogie Wonderland, and concertgoers were invited to dust off their flares and join in the fun.
