Carly Paoli

‘[Carly Paoli] effortlessly straddles two countries – Britain and Italy – and two musical genres, classical and popular….What a talent” **** David Mellor, Event Magazine, Mail on Sunday

Carly Paoli has announced that she will be joined at her debut UK headline concert by Grammy-Award winner, conductor and composer Steven Mercurio, Italian phenomenon Federico Paciotti and the renowned Canadian group, The Tenors.

Having performed with The Tenors at her concert ‘Music For Mercy’ in the Roman Forum and recently in New York, and with Federico at La Dolce Vita concert and at the Abbey Madonna Della Scala, Carly is delighted to be inviting them to join her in London.

‘I adore working with The Tenors. They were my special guests in my concert ‘Music for Mercy’ in the Roman Forum where they enchanted everybody with their singing. I have a special memory of them starting on the stage and then moving into the audience and thrilling them with their musicality, charm, and sheer brilliance. This time I will get to sing with them as well and I just can’t wait’ said Carly.

Multi-platinum, JUNO Award-winning vocal supergroup, The Tenors, comprised of Clifton Murray, Fraser Walters and Victor Micallef, blend classical music and contemporary pop to deliver powerful performances and outstanding harmonies for audiences around the world. Since 2008, The Tenors have sold over 1 million albums worldwide, performed nearly 1,000 shows on five continents and made over 150 television appearances.

Speaking about Federico, Carly said ‘I am fascinated by the innovative way that Federico has chosen to showcase his twin talents – singing and playing the rock guitar. It is something completely new and the combination of his guitar playing and then his magnificent operatic tenor sound is absolutely stunning. Federico was part of ‘La Dolce Vita’, a concert devoted to Italian film music, and I am thrilled that I get to be on stage with him again.’

Maestro Mercurio is an internationally acclaimed conductor, composer and arranger whose musical versatility encompasses the symphonic and operatic worlds. ‘I first met Steven in the wonderful Rome Auditorium when we were rehearsing ‘La Dolce Vita’. Straightaway I was aware of his charisma and energy and his love and complete passion for the music. He is fantastic to work with as he seems to really empathise and understand what a singer needs. I am so excited that I get to work with him again in music that I am also passionate about.

Carly Paoli has been delighting audiences throughout the world, shared stages with Andrea Bocelli, José Carreras and Elaine Paige, and can count Pope Francis and Prince Charles amongst her fans. Now, following the release of her acclaimed debut album ‘Singing My Dreams’, the classically trained singer is looking forward to this special concert at London’s Cadogan Hall.  

‘I’m so excited that I will be performing my own concert with orchestra in the stunning Cadogan Hall. This will be my opportunity to share the music from ‘Singing My Dreams’ – plus other songs close to my heart – with the audience. I can’t wait!’

With Carly joined on stage by The Abiah Symphony Orchestra, choir and these special guests, the evening will provide an opportunity to experience the emotional, sincere and dramatic performances that have captured audiences wherever the young artist has appeared.

On its release in 2017 Carly’s debut album ‘Singing My Dreams’ drew praise around the world, with classical critic David Mellor awarding it 4 stars and declaring ‘the operatic quality of her voice shines through’. The album reached number 2 in the UK classical charts where it continues to ride high. Sky Arts broadcast Music For Mercy, a unique concert held at the ancient Roman Forum headlined by Carly and featuring Andrea Bocelli, with special guests, Elaine Paige, David Foster, The Tenors and Giovanni Caccamo.

‘However exhilarating it is to create an album the thing that affords me even greater joy is to perform the music from that album to a ‘live’ audience. Privately, I’m reserved, but since childhood I’ve lived to sing on stage. I’m sure most artists would agree that there’s something extra special to live music, especially when accompanied by an orchestra. I think it’s a delight for both performer and audience to experience everyone on stage moving as one, playing and singing in complete harmony.’

In Italy, Carly’s achievements in art and culture were recognised when she was awarded with the prestigious Premio Barocco award (previous recipients include Dame Helen Mirren and Luciano Pavarotti). In 2016 Ave Maria’, a song from her album, was chosen as the official song of the Pope’s Jubilee celebrations.
