Jem Sharples of Tenors Unlimited said: “We want our audience to have an uplifting experience on this show, so we’ve chosen songs of love and laughter – some from our back catalogue, as well as new numbers, old favourites, modern pop songs and some that we wrote ourselves, there’s something for everyone.
In this show, Scott Ciscon, Jem Sharples and Paul Martin will take the audience on a journey through some of the most beloved songs of the last century, made famous by other “song icons”, such as Pavarotti, Lanza, Sting , Bublé and Freddie Mercury.
The band’s extensive repertoire includes the ever-popular classics, “The Pearl Fisher’s Duet” and “Nessun Dorma” mixed with crooner and pop favorites. These include ‘Barcelona’, ‘Recipe For Love’, ‘Nella Fantasia’ and ‘Everything’, as well as songs written by the band themselves.
The West Buckland School Choir consists of the School Chapel Choir (ages 14-18) combined with the Preparatory School Chamber Choir (ages 9-11).
The choir sings in a mix of styles, from quintessentially English choral music at regular services in county churches, but also pop, rock, musical theatre, gospel with the occasional madrigal.
Dom Carter, Music Director, said: “We are extremely delighted to be supporting Tenors Unlimited at our local Queen’s Theater and can’t wait to see the show!
