A CHOIR from a local operatic society is performing with Tenors Unlimited at the Theatre Royal. 

Tenors Unlimited, the ‘Rat Pack of Opera’, will be performing their Christmas show on Tuesday December 12 at 7.30pm with a choir from Winchester Musicals and Opera Society (WMOS).

This is part of Tenors Unlimited's new UK tour, as they enter a new era as a duo starring Jem Sharples and Paul Martin.

For the last 20 years, the group has historically been a trio. Following the retirement of the third member last year, Jem and Paul started performing as a duo. 

Jem said: “Celebrating 20 years and with a vast repertoire to choose from, we feel we’re at our best as a duo. We’re looking forward to performing our Christmas show.

"There’s something for everyone – popular classics, crooner and pop songs and of course Christmas favourites and plenty of opportunities for the audience to sing along.”
