Not many 23 year olds can say that they have released seven studio albums, performed in two professional musicals, toured nationally and are preparing for an international tour, but tenor and Sydney Eisteddfod Alumni Mark Vincent can.
Regarded as one of Australia’s most beloved classical artists, Mark has come leaps and bounds since 2008 when he first entered the Sydney Eisteddfod Classical Song (15 & 16 years) event with his rendition of Puccini’s Nessun Dorma.
The former Australia’s Got Talent winner started 2017 off with a bang, his latest studio album, A Tribute to Mario Lanza was released in early April and debuted at No. 1 on the Australian Aria charts. Due to the success of the albums release, Mark has announced he will be touring between October and November, performing shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
However this is not all he has in the pipeline, returning back to theatre after his 2014 debut in Dirty Dancing, Mark is currently playing Freddy Eynsford-Hill in the Australian premiere of My Fair Lady directed by Dame Julie Andrews. The musical is currently showing in Melbourne at the Regent Theatre and is set to move to Sydney for its Sydney Opera House opening on 6 September.
“I can’t believe this year, it has been incredible, I am loving My Fair Lady… my latest album, A Tribute to Mario Lanza, which is still in the Top 10 has been such a star performer and my Australian tour dates in October/November will highlight the albums repertoire” said Mark
The end of the year will not see the tenor enjoying a much-needed break, instead he will be joining star soprano, Katherine Jenkins for her December Christmas tour in the UK including a very special show at the Royal Albert Hall.
“When the dates were confirmed for both the Australian and the UK tour, I immediately felt that hard work and dedication really does pay off in the end”.
Sydney Eisteddfod wishes Mark the best of luck with all of his upcoming endeavours, having witnessed his talent and determination first hand it is no surprise to hear of all the wonderful opportunities that are coming his way.
