Lytham Community Choir will be joining the number one selling classical group Tenors Unlimited – the ‘Rat Pack of Opera’ – in a special presentation entitled “In Concert Celebrating 20 Years” at Lowther Pavilion Theatre, Lytham St Anne’s, on Saturday 13 May 7.30 p.m.
Jem Sharples from Tenors Unlimited says, ‘What a great 20 years it has been with memories to last more than one lifetime. Our repertoire includes popular classics and opera mixed with crooner and pop favourites, as well as songs written by ourselves. There’s something for everyone – from Michael Bublé, Frankie Valli to The Pearl Fisher’s Duet and Nessun Dorma, which we first sang live at Wembley Stadium at the FA Cup final.’
The group has performed on television, radio and around the world at top venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and The Royal Festival Hall, alongside such notables as Sting, Lionel Richie, Katherine Jenkins, Beyoncé, Hayley Westenra, Simply Red and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to name a few. For 20 years, Tenors Unlimited has been entertaining audiences world-wide using talents honed in their previous solo careers in opera and theatre. They bring their own blend of wit, humour, charm and vocal arrangements to their performances. See footage of their performances https://www.tenorsunlimited.com/media
Regarded as the original classical crossover ‘man band’, their show will take you on a wonderful musical journey through some of the best loved songs made famous by other ‘icons of song’, such as Pavarotti, Lanza, Sting and Bublé. The group’s wide-ranging repertoire includes the ever popular classics, “The Pearl Fisher’s Duet” and “Nessun Dorma” mixed with crooner and pop favourites. These include “Everything”, “Can’t Take My Eyes off you”, “You Raise Me Up”, “Some Enchanted Evening”, “Love Changes Everything” as well as songs written by the group themselves.
They will be joined by Lytham’s Community Choir. The Lytham Community Choir was set up by Cath Powell MBE in 2012. Cath says, ‘After watching the TV choir programme with Gareth Malone, I thought, I wonder if anyone in Lytham would be interested in joining a choir?’ After a post on social media and an article in the local press, Lytham Community Choir was born. Under the musical direction of Graham Warrington, Lytham Community Choir has gone from strength to strength, most notably appearing on a National Lottery TV advert and accompanying Britain’s Got Talent finalist Jonathan Antoine as part of his UK tour. As well as developing their choral skills, Lytham Community Choir is proud to have raised over a million pounds for local charities and good causes from the choir’s performances over the last ten years.
