About the event
Chris & Shimi met at Guildford School of Acting twenty two years ago and have been making music together ever since. Together they form the exciting musical Tenor & Piano duo – Tiano.
They are delighted to return to Crazy Coqs with a brand new show following three sold out performances last year. These two world class performers truly put the class into classical as they take the audience on a journey of musical styles from classical to popular. The genre “classical crossover” perfectly describes their style since everything they present is informed by a highly developed musicianship which impresses and never fails to entertain. One minute they present a passionate Puccini aria, the next they launch into a medley of 80’s hits, yet their eclectic programme makes perfect sense as they sweep the audience along with their energy, enthusiasm for music and amusing banter.
Tiano are becoming well known for their mash ups of familiar songs performed in perfect harmony and cleverly arranged by Chris on piano. Chris is a multi award winning composer and lyricist. He also writes songs with Shimi, two of which were featured on TV in 2020.
Tiano’s performances are so sophisticated and entertaining that when you watch them for the first time, you’ll kick yourself for not discovering them sooner!
