More than 20 years ago, Adelaide a-cappella vocal group Limited Edition started out as a bunch of friends at Brighton High School with a shared passion for singing.
Since then they’ve performed at venues all over South Australia, and next month they’ll make their debut at the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
“We’ve been singing at weddings, corporate functions and parties for years now, so it’s about time that we made an appearance at the Fringe, and to be honest, we can’t wait,” said soprano vocalist Rosanne Hosking.
The rich and warm harmonies of this eight-part vocal group will fill every corner of the Holden Street Theatre for their show, titled ‘In the Raw’, over four performances in March.
“We perform without any musical accompaniment – it’s just our voices. We like to take our audience back to a time before TV and iPods, when people came together to enjoy each other’s company and share some music,” said Ms Hosking.
The group perform across a range of genres including jazz, classical, pop, and gospel – just to name a few! Audiences can expect to hear everything from barber shop and musical theatre to popular hits from The Beatles, Sarah McLachlan and Robbie Williams.
To mark their 20th anniversary, Limited Edition recorded their first album in 2011, aptly titled ‘Twenty’.
Along with the successful release of their CD, the group lists a performance alongside one of Australia’s most well-known a-cappella groups The Idea of North as a major musical highlight.
“We are certainly inspired by them as they’ve had a lot of success performing all over the world,” said bass vocalist Bruce Harris.
