Three tenors recalled for Black Dyke festive performance at Sage

The brass band world's version of the famous World Cup 'Three Tenors' will be showcasing their talents at Sage Gateshead with Black Dyke this December.

Dyke
  John Storey, Glann Van Looy and Daniel Thomas are the three euphonium tenors

With the FIFA World Cup on the horizon, Black Dyke Band is to recall the spirit of one of the most famous performances of star players ever given.

Back in 1990 Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras came together to perform at the ancient baths of Caracalla in Rome on what was the eve of the final — watched by a television audience of over 800 million people.

Special performance

Now three of the most illustrious tenors in the banding movement will come together for a special performance at Sage Gateshead.

Euphonium stars Daniel Thomas, John Storey and Glenn Van Looy will be featured with the Queensbury Band under the baton of Prof Nicholas Childs on 4th December performing two special arrangement commissions from the pens of Alan Fernie and Keith Wilkinson.

Alan's 'Verissimo' will combine 'On with the Motley' and 'Nessun Dorma' — two of the iconic works featured on that famous Rome appearance, whilst Keith Wilkinson has provided a festive favourite with 'Christmas Classic, O Holy Night'.

Iconic

Talking about the concert, Prof Childs told 4BR: "That iconic 1990 concert brought the three tenors to worldwide prominence, and I'm sure this will be the same in the banding world with Glenn, Daniel and John — a trip of fantastic players.

This is going to be a fantastic attraction to what promises to be a great concert — and one I'm really looking forward to."

Before the concert commences there will be a special 30 minute performance in the foyer of Sage Gateshead featuring the Redhills Youth band conducted by Tina Mortimer. During the morning Black Dyke stars Richard Marshall, Brett Baker and Daniel Thomas will also lead workshops for young students, supported by Geneva Instruments.

100 musicians

The concert promises to be a real spectacular with over 100 musicians on stage for the finale featuring Black Dyke, NASUWT Riverside and Reg Vardy who will also join forces with the Redhills Youth band.
