Mark Vincent Brings His Best To Redcliffe
Don’t miss the opportunity to witness the incredible talent of Mark Vincent, Australia’s classical crossover tenor, when he takes the stage at the Redcliffe Entertainment Centre.

On Saturday, 6 July, Mark will perform his most popular hits in his show, The Best So Far.

Mark, who shot to fame after winning Australia’s Got Talent in 2009 at the age of 15, said his repertoire included Hallelujah and Nessun Dorma.

“Audiences can expect a calibration of songs from musical theatre, arias and classic ballads that I’ve been known for over the years,” he said.

“Nessun Dorma for me is an aria like no other. It’s the party piece of my show. If I don’t do this aria, people yell out for it.

“For me, it’s great to experience the audience’s reactions from different areas around the country. Make me always believe that being a performer is who I am and what I’m meant to be doing.

“The hardest thing is being away from my wife and children. It can get lonely on the road touring but this is the business I’m in. It’s all part of the journey.”

Mark began singing at the age of 9 when he was inspired by his grandfather and the music of American actor and tenor, Mario Lanza.

After struggling to find the right singing teacher, Mark eventually met a special woman named Mrs Gould.

“She was the only person who never gave up on me,” he said. “To think I went through five different singing teachers prior to her and each teacher said the same thing: ‘We can’t help Mark. He can’t take on music direction.’ Mrs Gould saw something in me and from that moment I started with her, I never looked back.”

Mark’s career has been on the upward ever since, working with artists like Dame Julie Andrews and recording the album A Tribute to Mario Lanza, which features a virtual duet with the legendary tenor.  

He said paying tribute to Mario was a great honour.

“Having Mario Lanza’s only living daughter, Elisa, giving me permission to do this project is something I’ll never forget,” he said. “I’ll always cherish this close to my heart.”

Tickets start at $75.50 (excluding transaction fee).
