Let the songs begin. Let the music play. Get ready for Supertonic’s next gig Thunderbolt and Lightning, an epic tribute concert set to rock Queen fans and choir buffs alike at the Hunter Lounge this September.
This choral spectacular has it all - the choir’s powerful sound from its 56 singers, a full rock band, exciting solos and quartets, and heart-stopping takes on your favourite Queen anthems. Thunderbolt and Lightning aims to be as diverse as Queen’s extensive catalogue - from the light pop shuffle of You’re My Best Friend to the epic pastiche of musical styles in Bohemian Rhapsody.
A quartet of our talented operatic singers will tackle Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe’s collaboration in Barcelona, written for the 1992 Olympics, while The Prophet’s Song from their progressive album A Night At The Opera features the choir imitating their looped sample recording techniques in this mammoth and lesser known track. You’ll hear the full force of our rich sound in the unforgettable harmonies of Somebody to Love, and in Who Wants To Live Forever the choir starts with a single note that flows and grows into a spine-tingling 24-part chorus.
Supertonic (and its director, Isaac Stone) aims to take choral music to new places and new heights with its innovative and no-compromises concerts, and this one promises to be the most exhilarating yet.
We’re gonna make a Supertonic fan out of you!
