The Australian Tenors have performed for presidents, heads of state and prime ministers and they are excited to be coming to Wagga.
Lorenzo Rositano, Murray Mayday, Ryan O’Donnell, David McKenzie and John Donohoe form the touring group.
Tenor Lorenzo Rositano said there is no question of what is the biggest inspiration for his career.
“The classical composers are, without doubt, the biggest influence for the tenor voice,” he said.
“Such beautiful arias were written for that voice type, Puccini, Donizetti, Verdi - we sing some of their arias in our concert.
“In the last 50 years, there have been great composers such as Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim.”
Mr Rositano said there is a popular misconception about professional singers, that some people would be surprised to know.
“Contrary to belief, we go to bed as early as possible,” he said.
“The body needs constant maintenance in sleep, good eating and exercise.
“We are looking forward to going to Wagga, it is a joy for us to bring a show that the patrons could not see unless they travel to a capital city.”
Singing as a full-time job can be very demanding, Mr Rositano said.
“Vocalising every day is demanding, no matter how you feel.
“The voice is an instrument and needs to be warmed up daily, honey and lemon is also good for this.”
The highlight of Mr Rositano’s career has been performing internationally.
“The Australian tenors have performed nationally and internationally for presidents, heads of state and Australian Prime Ministers,” he said.
The Australian Tenors will perform their show Friends For Life at the Civic Theatre this weekend.
