Basingstoke Gazette: Conductor Anthony Brown will lead The Fulltone Orchestra. Inset, Aled Jones will be leadingOn the forthcoming tour, Aled said: “Having heard how exciting and fabulously talented The Fulltone Orchestra are, I knew going on a mini-tour with them was going to be a lot of fun, so jumped at the chance to come and present their five-night concert series.

“They’ll be playing some of the best classical and film music we all know and love; it really is going to be one of those events you’ll remember – come along for the ride with us all.”

Brown has chosen a diverse selection of music drawn from the most beloved pieces across concert halls, cinemas, and opera houses.

Performed by the 50-piece Fulltone Orchestra, audiences can delight in the grandeur of Sibelius' Finlandia, the dramatic flair of Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, the poignant beauty of Elgar's Nimrod (Enigma Variations), and the emotive journey of Dvořák's 2nd Movement of The New World Symphony.

The concert will include special tributes to the legendary composers Ennio Morricone, Henry Mancini and Nino Rota, with Se Tu Fossi and Moon River performed by Classical Brit Nominee Carly Paoli and Parla Più Piano from The Godfather films sung by Gareth Dafydd Morris, whilst the Orchestra plays cinematic treasures like Gabriel’s Oboe and the main themes from the movies Out of Africa, The Magnificent Seven, and The Lord of the Rings. Carly Paoli will also be singing In Dreams from The Fellowship of the Ring.

With additional musical operatic pieces, no concert is complete without the timeless melodies of O Sole Mio and Nessun Dorma which will be delivered by Gareth Dafydd Morris. The evening will conclude with a surprise finale.

Talking earlier this week, Paoli said: "Everyone who knows me knows I just love to sing. Singing with a wonderful orchestra - another joy - singing classic songs by Morricone, Puccini and the Hollywood greats - well I’m in my happy place. So I’m thrilled to be doing exactly this with the amazing Fulltone Orchestra alongside wonderful Welsh tenor Gareth and my great friend, Aled.”

Conductor Brown added: “In the words of Clemency Burton-Hill, I too want to ‘extend the hand to those who feel that the world of classical music is a party to which they haven’t been invited’ and I too ‘want to open up a vast treasury of musical riches’ of classical music and music that is the soundtrack to some of the biggest film in cinema history – and what better way to do that with Aled Jones, Carly Paoli and Gareth Dafydd Morris, people who feel as passionately about this music that touches your soul, as I and the amazing musicians in Fulltone do. We are going to have an incredible night together.”
