Enjoy Broadway tunes with a twist at Grand Opera House

March 28, 2014 

The Ten Tenors will perform Saturday at the Grand Opera House.

SPECIAL TO THE TELEGRAPH

Broadway’s greatest show tunes will be belted out by 10 Australians on Saturday at the Grand Opera House.

“The Ten Tenors: On Broadway” will be a part of a weekend of Cherry Blossom Festival musical activities. The two Macon performances will be a bit different from the group’s other performances as six students from Mercer University’s Robert McDuffie Center for Strings will be accompanying the tenors.

“This should be a fun and entertaining experience for the students to see the behind the scenes action of a big show like this,” Amy Schwartz Moretti, director of the McDuffie Center for Strings, said in a news release. “This is one of the many reasons why being part of the McDuffie Center is a great education for these budding musicians.”

The Australian group combines sounds of rock and classical music to produce a unique two-hour opera experience. This will include their take on classics from “Phantom of the Opera,” “Les Miserables,” “Oklahoma,” “West Side Story” and “Miss Saigon” as well as a sampling of newer Broadway music from shows including “Wicked,” “Rock of Ages” and “Spamalot.”

The performance, which is part of the group’s four-month U.S. tour, is the last of the Grand Opera House’s Broadway series.
