Sopranos combine to bring world class act to North Lakes

March 5, 2015 by  

A concert performance by the 7 Sopranos is heading to the new multi-million dollar community centre, The Corso, in North Lakes, Queensland.

The youthful, classically trained opera singing group originally came together in 2009 to perform in a huge corporate event in Cambodia, and the union was made possible by Conservatorium graduate Tarita Botsman.

After spending 10 years singing at venues across Europe, Botsman was well aware that work for opera graduates was not always easy to find, particularly during their early years before their vocal peak, which is considered to be when they hit the 40s.

According to Botsman, fostering new talent such as the 7 Sopranos was at first fulfilling a passion to help young people, but it soon developed into a more serious franchise after the ABC signed them up to produce the group’s first CD.

The track shot up the ARIA charts and the group’s popularity soared.

The March 14th concert in North Lakes will feature the 7 Sopranos singing arias from Nessun Dorma, Toreador, Phantom of the Opera, La Boheme, Carmen and La Traviata.

While poster printing highlights the group’s classical talents, the 7 Sopranos will also perform a host of popular songs and classic show tunes.

According to organisers the show, which runs from 7.30 to 11pm, will be a mix of lavish costumes and opulent sets.
