A trio of tenors known as Ultimi will perform in the Hart Auditorium at Brigham Young University-Idaho in Rexburg on Thursday, July 27, at 7:30 p.m.
Ultimi is a fusion of the diverse vocal and instrumental talents of tenors Isaac Hurtado, Nathan Northrup and Brian Stucki, who all live in Utah. Joining forces in February 2014, the three have separately performed well over 100 operatic tenor roles combined and numerous concerts across the United States and internationally.
With voices of immense beauty, power, flexibility and range, their repertoire includes not only hits made famous by the original Three Tenors, but also crossover, musical theater and popular tunes. The group has the added dimension of cello accompaniment provided by Stucki.
The name "Ultimi" (pronounced "ool-tee-mee") means "latest" and has a connection to the Italian name of their shared faith.
Tickets for this Center Stage performance are $10 for the general public and $5 for BYU-Idaho students and Education Week participants. They are available online at tickets.byui.edu or on school days from the University Store Ticket Office 208-496-3170.
