About Trovatori

Award-winning soprano and tenor duo who accompany ourselves on classical guitars, performing in concert and at events worldwide
Classical duo

Verified profile

Voted 'Best Wedding Musical Duo 2021' by AI Global Media, we are a soprano and tenor who combine our classically trained voices with classical guitars. We offer carefully chosen programmes of music tailored to each event we perform at. We arrange beautiful songs and duets for our voices and guitars from many genres of music, including opera and classical, music theatre, folk, ballads, art song and film themes. Our two CDs of our arrangements of songs from these genres were recently selected to be added to the National Sound Archive at the British Library. We have been fortunate enough to perform all over the world at music festivals, in opera houses, halls and theatres as well as more intimate venues such as churches and village halls. We have also performed at numerous corporate and private events around the UK, including weddings, restaurants, parties, religious and secular services. We have also performed as regular headline entertainers for Warner at their many hotels around the UK, and as guest entertainers for many luxury cruise lines. We are accomplished recording artists with a home studio and have worked with hundreds of clients internationally on varied projects including new classical and operatic works, film and TV soundtracks, contemporary songs in many genres, adverts and more. After meeting at the Bregenz Opera Festival we got married and began working together. Trovatori is Italian for wandering minstrels, which is the perfect job description for us as we share a passion for travelling and singing, discovering music that we can present to audiences worldwide! We both trained as opera singers but are versatile performers and love singing many different styles of music. We're always open to special requests and suggestions from our clients, so please do get in touch if your favourite song is not on our repertoire list!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our clients love that we offer something totally unique for the guests - the blend of our classically trained voices with the subtle accompaniment of our guitars is a wonderful addition to many different kinds of events. Clients also appreciate our friendly professionalism and flexibility in terms of being able to tailor our repertoire to suit their event.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have performed internationally at a wide range of places, from grand venues such as the Royal Albert Hall and Birmingham Symphony Hall to theatres on luxury cruise liners like Cunard, Dorchester Collection Hotels through to more intimate venues such as churches, restaurants and even clients' gardens, conservatories and living rooms!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We both have an eclectic music taste! - artistic influences range from classical singers such as Franco Corelli, Placido Domingo, Maria Callas and Angela Gheorghiu to more modern artists like John Denver, Kate Bush, Billy Joel, Tori Amos, Peter Gabriel, Sting... to name but a few!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

As artists we've performed in many high profile venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Queen Elizabeth and Cadogan Halls in London, Birmingham Symphony Hall as well as theatres worldwide in opera and operettas and in concert with the BBC Singers.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard line up is 2 x vocals and 2 x guitars, but you can hire just Darren, or just Caroline if preferred!

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We are always open to being flexible and will do our best to accommodate your change in plans, so long as we are free and able to do so

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

We are happy to provide iPod/iPad music between sets if desired

How much time do you need to set up?

Without PA equipment we need minimal set up time of 10-15 minutes. With PA we would need 20-30 minutes to set up and sound check.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes - we can either perform acoustically or with microphones attached to our instruments so we can move around.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Absolutely! Our set lists have been tailored from many performances and learning what songs work together best for different events. However, we're very happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for you.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes, PA is included; we don't currently provide lighting

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. However we're very happy to learn requests for a specific event; there would be a charge of £30 extra to allow for learning and practice if it's something that isn't already in our repertoire.
