The Sicilian Tenors in Newberry
When you think of some of greatest Tenor voices in history Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jonas Kaugfmann come to mind. These names invoke the bright full timbre that is strong enough to be heard over an orchestra. Experience the magic in person as The Sicilian Tenors take the Newberry Opera House stage on Saturday, September 23, 2016 @ 8:00pm. Meet Aaron Caruso, Elio Scaccio, and Sam Vitale - these three voices come together and take the audience on a journey from Hollywood to Broadway to Italy with operatic tenor voices singing a wide variety of marvelous songs that America loves.

“The Three Tenors meets The Rat Pack” - Joan Rivers
"Just brilliant, what a wonderful act!" - William Shatner
“...Three handsome tenors --- all American born, all of Sicilian ancestry, all good friends of many years, all classically trained -- treated a wildly receptive audience to an interesting mélange of Broadway ("Phantom of the Opera"), opera ("Tosca"), classic Neapolitan songs ("O Sole Mio", et al), popular Sicilian songs, and even a rousing rendition of "God Bless America", that with full audience participation.” - Larry Kellum, The Town Times
