Kiwi born and bred classical crossover artist Will Martin has decided to return home for one very special concert, and it’s a concert with a very big difference.  With a UK Number One album – A New World - and performances at the Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Stadium and The Henley Festival to his credit, Will has decided his New Zealand fans should design the set list for the Mother’s Day weekend event.

The concert, which marks his first solo performance in New Zealand since the release of A New World, will be held on Saturday, May 8 at the North Shore’s Bruce Mason Centre. The youngest tenor to ever top the UK Classical charts, Will says it will be great to get home – even if it is just for the one show!

“There’s nowhere I would rather be than performing in New Zealand, for New Zealanders.  This is the perfect opportunity for my Kiwi supporters to play a part in my biggest ever show,” says the 25 year-old from his Devonport base, temporarily back in NZ.

“This isn’t about what I want to sing – it’s about what you want to hear”.  That’s exactly what this show will be. It could be your favourite track from the album, a popular classic on the piano, or even a dedication to your Mum.  And, whatever your song choice, it will be brought to life by the legendary Rodger Fox Band.  “These guys are the best at what they do hands down, so we had to have them involved to create a night that will definitely be remembered.”

Will has broken new ground in the classical crossover genre and since the 2007 release of A New World has been in hot demand across the UK where he has recently toured with the All Angels and the Fron Male Voice Choir. Not bad for a bloke first spotted singing the New Zealand National Anthem at an All Blacks test match!
