Songs of the war years at Wesley

WE REMEMBER: Roy Best, middle, will perform in Horsham with Caroline Vercose, Jaz Flowers and Alison Rae Jones in We Remember… Great Songs of the War Years.

A performer that critics have described as one of Australia’s most-loved and dynamic performers will return to Wesley Performing Arts Centre in Horsham next week.

Roy Best, who performed in Horsham with Yvonne Kenny for the 2008 Art is…tasty Festival, returns with Promac Productions on May 9 for the show We Remember… Great Songs of the War Years.

The show also stars Opera Australia soprano Caroline Vercoe, Australian international soprano Alison Rae Jones, musical-theatre star Jaz Flowers, compere Chris McKenna and Horsham-born Linda O’Brien on piano.

This show will cover songs from both world wars with tributes to Dame Vera Lynn, Gracie Fields, and from the 1940s The Andrew Sisters. It will include songs such as ‘We’ll Meet Again’, ‘White Cliffs of Dover’, ‘Underneath the Lamplight’, ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’, ‘Blue Moon’ and ‘Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree’.

Tenor Roy Best established his singing career after successfully competing in ABC television’s Operatunity Oz. He performed the role of the Duke in Opera Australia’s Rigoletto at the Sydney Opera House and was rewarded with a standing ovation from a packed house and a television audience of more than a million viewers.
