“I’ve been a fan of Melinda’s for a long time and had very much enjoyed her first album celebrating Doris Day, so I was delighted to be asked to sing the beautiful ‘Young at Heart’ with her for this second disc. The experience was a joy and I had hoped it may lead to further opportunities for us to perform together in the future” Tom explained.
“And it has!” exclaimed Melinda “I can’t describe how excited I am to be performing all these great songs live with a huge talent like Tom … audiences are simply going to love these concerts!”
Young At Heart is inspired by the hugely successful collaboration of two of Hollywood’s biggest stars who took the world by storm in 1955 with the box-office hit movie Young At Heart, and a top-selling soundtrack album of the same name.
A determination to faithfully recreate the lush orchestral arrangements of that era has seen some of Australia’s very best musicians brought together under the stewardship of musical director Michael Harding to form the Young At Heart Orchestra who will perform with Tom and Melinda.
Audiences can look forward to hearing Tom presenting some of the all-time Sinatra greats, Melinda delivering the hits of Doris Day and the two of them coming together for a selection of breathtaking duets.
Reminisce with such memorable tunes as Secret Love, New York New York, Que Sera Sera, Come Fly With Me, Shakin’ The Blues, Mack The Knife, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps, and of course, Young At Heart.
Don’t miss this nostalgic evening of song and music celebrating two of the greatest music legends of our time.
Young At Heart, a wonderful trip down memory lane for audiences to cherish.
