JOHOR BAHRU – Italian a-capella group Mezzotono is set to return to Johor Bahru for Mad in Italy – A Fun Evening of A-Cappella on 12th March 2018, 8.00 PM, at Doubletree by Hilton Johor Bahru. With an impressive performance record that spans 42 countries across 4 continents, the five maestros of Mezzotono are set to dazzle audiences in Johor Bahru for a third time, following 2 sold out performances in 2015 at the JB Jazz Festival and the 12th JB Arts Festival.
FIVE VOICES, ONE STAGE, A SPECTRUM OF SOUNDS
Describing themselves as ‘a small Italian orchestra without instruments’, each Mezzotono performance is executed entirely with only five human voices and a repertoire that ranges from pop to jazz, bossa nova, mambo, tango, big band, folk, and classical music. Adding fresh and inventive twists to each arrangement, a Mezzotono show is uniquely original, while their often comical approach to performing makes the show suitable for audiences of all ages and background.
Performing in Johor Bahru for one night only will be tenor Fabio Lepore, soprano Daniela Desideri, mezzosoprano Francesca Leone, baritone Luigi Nardiello, and bass Alessandro Gnolfo. True ambassadors of Italian music, the group has performed extensively in hundreds of concerts around the world, and have had several prominent Italian television appearances, including appearances on Italy’s Got Talent. They released their self-titled album ‘Mezzotono’ in 2008 and their latest album ‘Mad in Italy’ in 2015.
