									Internationally Acclaimed Classical Crossover Artist Mario Frangoulis Brings
"Beautiful Things" to the US and Canada This Spring

Mario Frangoulis, the operatically trained powerhouse tenor and leading recording artist of
Greece, brings his highly anticipated 2013 North American concert series, “Beautiful Things,” to
audiences this spring.

Detroit, MI, April 05, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Concert-goers are in for a rare treat as this world-renowned
vocalist who started his career as Marius in “Les Miserables” in London's West End, Tony in “West Side
Story” at La Scala in Milan, and was personally chosen by Andrew Lloyd Webber to play Raoul in
“Phantom of the Opera,” returns to electrify American audiences with his powerful voice and
incomparable stage presence. Porter Anderson of CNN.com said, “You bask in the glistening dynamics
and tonal control he brings to his vocals.”

Named 2011 Best Male Classical Crossover Artist, Frangoulis has been described as, “the kind of tenor
sound that brings down the house!” With “Beautiful Things,” he has created an emotional and inspiring
musical journey that will transport audiences to all corners of the world, singing in English, Spanish,
French, Italian and Greek.

Each show in the series will feature talented guests, an eclectic repertoire, and engage audiences through
Frangoulis' charismatic live performing, backing vocals by an international and talented vocal ensemble,
“Women of the World,” from Italy, Japan, India and the United States, and a world-class group of
musicians from all over the world, including Martin Zarzar of the famed “Pink Martini.”
