Daytime Concert offers classical variety
In 2014, tenors Bonaventure Allan-Moetaua, Derek Hill and Kalauni Pouvalu teamed up with Operatunity’s co-founder and director Susan Boland, for a Daytime Concert tour.
Such a good time was had by all, that the quartet are back for 3 Tenors and a Soprano Reunited to share their fantastic voices and musical passion, their friendship, humour and warmth.
With a wealth of experience from a range of professional productions and Daytime Concert touring, 3 Tenors and a Soprano Reunited is a heartwarming concert full of wellknown and loved songs from popular and classical music. Among them will be O Sole Mio, My Way, Nessun Dorma, Come Back to Sorrento and The Donkey Serenade.
