Visit by Amore to the club - 31st May 2012. These guys have signed to Warner Bros music and featured in the Queens Junilee pagent just a few days after their visit to us.
AMORE SERENADE ROTARIANS
As part of their “Serenading Britain” community tour leading up to the Queen’s Jubilee, classical crossover group Amore serenaded members of the Rotary Club of Plympton recently. This was made possible through one of the Rotary club members who has known a member of the group for several years and after hearing that as part of this “tour” they would be in Plymouth - earlier in the day before they visited the Rotarians, Amore performed at Dartmoor Zoological Park.
The group is made up of Monica McGhee (Soprano), David Webb (Tenor), Victoria Gray (Mezzo Soprano) and Peter Brathwaite (baritone) and before the meeting they performed a mini set comprising of three songs which showcased all of their vocal talents and included a little humour for good measure.
Peter met Plymouth born David while were still teenagers and singing together as part of Truro Cathedral’s choir. Peter had planned to go to University to study architecture. But he got the prospectus for the Royal College of Music and both he and David loved the idea of going. They both auditioned and were accepted. It was here that they met Monica and Victoria.
The girls have known the boys for six years now, but all of them say something special happens when they sing together. “Our voices match so well,” Monica says. “It’s true for personality and sound and energy too. We also have a lot of fun together!”
Not so long ago, as students, Amore would claim to be an opera group signed to a major label just to get onto club and party guest lists. Now, having signed a six album deal with Warner Bros. they actually are signed to a major label and they’ve made their debut album with the Grammy winning producer and arranger, Simon Franglen. Their first album, “Stand Together”, has just been released.
The Rotary Club of Plympton would like to thank Amore for visiting us and for making this such a magical evening.
