Opera, not my thing really until I heard Sol3 Mio
Three North Shore lads of Samoan descent, who no-one knew of 18 months ago, brought the concertgoers to their feet on Friday night.
Timaru's Theatre Royal was full and every one of the 1100 patrons seemed in awe of Sol3 Mio, made up of brothers Pene and Amitai Pati and their cousin Moses Mackay.
The only thing matching their voices was their presence.
The trio had personality and a great sense of humour, genuinely having fun with each other and some in the audience in the place they dubbed "Tiramisu".
