Joey Niceforo to perform solo show in Sudbury
Joey Niceforo will return to Sudbury this week for a concert to debut his new solo album Live Like Horses.
Niceforo left Sudbury when he was 19 years old to study at the Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music.
In 2005, Niceforo was invited to be a member of the Canadian Tenors. That led to the creation of his own critically acclaimed group called Destino.
But recently, some members of Destino moved on, leaving Niceforo to decide what was next.
"I thought, what am I going to do? It's really hard to kind of start up again from scratch, so I thought maybe I will quit singing," he said
Instead, Niceforo decided to launch a solo career.
Niceforo will perform Wednesday at the Fraser Auditorium at Laurentian University in Sudbury starting at 7:30 p.m.
He is expected to perform a variety of music from his debut solo CD release, Live Like Horses which includes a mix of original songs and classics from his catalogue of jazz, pop, opera and art songs.
A number of traditional Christmas carols will also be performed.
Tickets are available through the Sudbury Theatre Centre.
Joey Niceforo, who now lives in Newmarket, spoke with CBC Sudbury Morning North radio program host Markus Schwabe:
