Mark Vincent - Best So far2:30 & 7:30pm
Who better to launch the dynamic new 2016 concert season of Australia’s most entertaining orchestra than tenor singing sensation Mark Vincent – who has carved out an impressive career on the concert stage since winning the third series of Australia’s Got Talent in 2009, aged just 16. Mark’s commanding stature and powerful voice earned him a contract with Sony Music, which resulted in no less than five albums making the ARIA Classical Top 20 music charts, with the Compass and The Great Tenor Songbook both certified gold in Australia.
We warmly welcome Mark back to the Pops fold after his spectacular debut at the 2014 Best Of British concerts. Mark will showcase his biggest hits in his very own ‘Best Of’ show, drawing from a broad repertoire of the most memorable songs of all time. This will be a concert not to be missed!
To quote Mark Vincent himself: “Music is in me. You know, when you're born with something inherently in you? I think we are all born with a voice capable of singing, but not everyone has it in them to use it. I grew up listening to all the beautiful arias, and I feel that when I sing, I really am the happiest guy on earth. All my troubles are gone. And you know, many people have a great voice, an exceptional voice even, but what's missing is the storytelling. It's not just about singing notes; it's always, always about telling a story.”
Mark’s amazing tenor voice – which has a depth and clarity that belies his years – together with the genuine affinity he enjoys with his audience, will once again ensure the warmest afterglow ... long after the concert is over. Mark’s star continues to rise with each passing year, so don’t miss this premiere event for 2016. Mark’s most recent album is entitled Best So Far ... and he is sure to deliver above and beyond that pledge, accompanied by the one and only Queensland Pops Orchestra. Sit back, get comfortable and savour the wonders of one of Australia’s most sought-after young male vocalists, and be treated to a night of unforgettable songs from the very best popular music has to offer.
