Scozzesi

Male singers
Saturday 18th January, 2020 at 7:30pm

With their ability to cross musical boundaries, Scozzesi's richly varied repertoire will provide something for everyone.

An exciting new vocal male ensemble (quartet or octet) of professional, classically trained singers plus accompanist, Scozzesi (italian for Scottish men) are the latest word in posh boy bands!  The singers are all young Scottish men who are already making their mark in the singing world in their solo careers, who will be bringing us an eclectic mix of arias from opera, operetta and Gilbert and Sullivan, songs from the shows, and traditional songs in four part harmony.

"Scozzesi" modestly describe themselves as "A Male Vocal Quartet of Classically Trained Singers", but the delighted audience at their performance in the Old Kirk, Kirkaldy, discovered this was an understatement roughly equivalent to Nicola Benedetti saying she has been taught the violin.
