Midsummer Extravaganza At Musgrave Park Cork With IL DIVO!
June 21st 2014, 6pm
The orchestra will be joined by the world's leading classical crossover quartet Il Divo as the superstars perform at a fully seated 5-hour event at Musgrave Park
Il Divo, with Spanish baritone Carlos Marin, French pop star Sébastien Izambard, US tenor David Miller and Swiss tenor Urs Buhler, have played several concerts in Ireland over the last number of years, with sell-out concerts each time, while enjoying world-wide acclaim for their unique performances and charming personalities. They will be supported by the créme de la créme of Irish classical vocal talent, including The Irish Sopranos, with other surprise guests on the evening and a full programme of popular music performed by The City of Cork Symphony Orchestra, the longest-running non-professional orchestra in the world.
Audience members can expect to hear popular classics such as "Some Enchanted Evening" (South Pacific), "Bring Him Home" (Les Miserables), "Tonight" (West Side Story) and more, drawn from Il Divo's current album "A Musical Affair" (which showcases Il Divo's signature romantic and emotional interpretation of Broadway favourites) while artfully accompanied by 75 strong City of Cork Symphony Orchestra.
