Their show truly has something for everyone as longtime serving member Paul Gelsumini says, “The best part of being in this group is being able to sing whatever we want to sing from all music genres, be it classical, rock or even diva pop, and seeing the delight and surprise on audience members faces in that split moment when they realize what we are singing next; it’s such a buzz and so much fun when seemingly conservative audience members get up and dance in their seats.”

The group’s producer, D-J Wendt adds, “In the early days people only wanted to hear arias, nowadays people are screaming out for pop songs, arias and rock anthems. We promise to give you all of that and much more in our 20th anniversary year. This is a no holds barred show, right from the first song everyone will know that we plan to leave nothing in the tank by the end of the show.”
