Vox Vortura will perform at the Turnage Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on March 21.
The group, recent semi-finalists on Britain’s TV show “Britain’s Got Talent,” is that nation’s new classical crossover group. Described by fans as the next Il Divo, Fox Vortura brings classical vocals back into the mainstream.
The Beaufort County Concert Association presents the concert.
Single tickets for this one-time performance are $40. The only available seating will be in the balcony. Take note there is no elevator, only stair to access the balcony.
“This is Vox Fortura’s first U.S. tour. The group has been together since 2016, and was launched on that season of ‘Britain’s Got Talent,’” said Erika Finley, publicity/marketing coordinator with Live On Stage, in an email to the Washington Daily Near.
This show-stopping group brought to the “Britain’s Got Talent” competition a powerful display of vocal panache and sheer class. “Filling every wow-factor performance with personality and style, their ability to perform almost any era or genre of music in their iconic crossover style touches on everything from Elgar and Bizet’s “Pearl Fishers” to David Bowie, John Legend and Ed Sheeran,” according to a news release.
“That was a masterful presentation … you stirred so many feelings in me. You are BGT’s dream ambassadors,” said Amanda Holden of “Britain’s Got Talent.”
Alesha Dixon, of “Britain’s Got Talent,” said of Vox Fortura: “Polished to perfection.”
The next Beaufort County Concert Association’s concert will feature Dr. Ron Tynan at 7:30 p.m. on April 2 at the Turnage Theatre, where the association presents its concerts.
Tynan, an orthopedist, is known for his versatile range of repertoire, which includes selections from the operatic, oratorio, concert and pop music genres. Tynan’s music training occurred at the Leinster School of Music and Drama in Dublin, Ireland, and continued at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, England, earning a post-graduate diploma in voice. In 1998, he became a member of The Irish Tenors, a group with whom he continues to tour with today.
“From his opening number to his encore, every song was a thrilling experience,” said Ron Forman with Cabaret Scenes.
