Tenors perform at Everglades for Coast Shelter
A concert featuring two of Australia's premier tenors will be held at Everglades Country Club, Woy Woy, on Saturday, September 10, from 7pm, to raise money for Coast Shelter.
David Kidd and Andrew Pryor have sung in some of the world's most iconic venues from London's Royal Albert Hall to the MCG, according to Coast Shelter fundraiser Ms Vicki de Carle.
She said that, in their latest show, they brought a mix of humour, sophistication and beautiful melodies to the stage, "with a camaraderie born from 15 years of performing together and a repertoire including everything from Elvis to Puccini."
As a regular performer for Opera Queensland, Mr Pryor had performed various roles in productions such as Lucia di Lammermoor, La Forza Del Destino, Oedepus Rex, Eugine Onegin, Otello, Carmen, Parsifal, Turandot and Falstaff and Faust, she said.
He had also performed with Opera Australia, at the Sydney Opera House, including performances of Madama Butterfly, the Barber of Seville and Billie Budd.
Ms de Carle said Mr Kidd was also a regular with Opera Queensland, having performed in The Merry Widow, Fidelio, Turandot, The Girl of the Golden West and as iconic tenor Donald Smith in Waltzing Our Matilda.
In 2010, he appeared as a soloist in Opera in the Arboretum at Pearl Beach.
They were both founding members of The Ten Tenors.
