Hundreds of opera fans flocked to a garden centre near Burnham-On-Sea on Wednesday (August 23rd) to hear West Country singer Tim Pitman perform an impressive line-up of opera music.

Heavy rain failed to dampen spirits at the outdoor concert, held in Sanders Garden World’s Village Square, when around 300 people listened to the professional operatic tenor singer and songwriter perform a range of modern and classical songs.

The crowds shelter under umbrellas at the start of the eventTim’s Manager, Victor Spark, told “Tim performed a wide variety of songs during the concert, ranging from classic pop songs from the 1950s and 1960s through to classical Aria’s made famous by world-renown tenors such as Enrico Caruso, Mario Lanza, Luciano Paverotti, Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo and Andrea Bocelli. He has a superb voice and is a real talent.”

During the event, Tim, who performed at the Glastonbury Extravaganza with the Royal Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra last year after being invited by Michael Eavis, received loud applause as he hit all the right notes despite suffering from a throat infection.

A heavy rain storm left part of the garden centre flooded just before Wednesday’s performance was set to get underway, forcing it to be postponed by 30 minutes.
