Two of the group live in Surrey – Jem Sharples in Surbiton, while Paul Martin is in Cobham, Surrey.
Tenors Unlimited’s wide-ranging repertoire includes the ever popular classics ‘La Donna E Mobile’, ‘The Pearl Fishers Duet’ and ‘Nessun Dorma’, interspersed with crooner and pop favourites such as Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud”; Sting’s “Fragile”, Freddie Mercury’s “Barcelona”, ‘Volare’, ‘Moon River’ as well as songs written by Tenors Unlimited themselves which include “Senza di Te”, a track from their current album “The Journey”, as well as the title tracks to their previous albums ‘Brand New Day’ and ‘Viva La Vita’.
Surrey Heath Singers, based in Camberley, is a choir of 75 with a wide ranging repertoire. In 1986 two local choirs – Camberley Choral and France Hill – came together to form Surrey Heath Choral Society, but in 2013 the choir changed its name to Surrey Heath Singers. With the encouragement and direction of Andrew Philipps, musical director, it has not only broadened its singing repertoire, but also become more involved with the local community. The choir has formed associations with local schools and Frimley Park Hospital.
Andrew Phillips from Surrey Heath Singers says “We are pleased to be joining Tenors Unlimited at Camberley Theatre – it will be a fantastic experience for all the choir members.”
For over ten years, Scott Ciscon, Paul Martin and Jem Sharples have entertained audiences throughout the world. Using talents honed in their previous solo careers in opera and theatre, they bring their own blend of wit, charm and vocal arrangements to their performances. Alan Titchmarsh OBE said “21st century tenors, great fun, great voices and a great evening.” Tenors Unlimited sang at the memorial service for football legend Sir Bobby Robson and sang live at Wembley Stadium at the FA Cup final.

ABOUT TENORS UNLIMITED
Born and raised in Chicago, USA, Scott studied Engineering and Communications at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, but it’s fair to say that he’s been singing since birth.
After a few summer seasons in the US, his first Broadway audition took him abroad to Germany where he starred in musicals such as Grease (Danny), Rent (understudy Mark and Roger) and Saturday Night Fever (Frank Junior and understudy Monty.) After a call from London’s West End, Scott began his life in the UK. His first show was Notre Dame de Paris (as Phoebus and understudy Gringoire) followed by The Witches of Eastwick (as Joe and understudy Darryl Van Horne). Shortly thereafter Tenors Unlimited was born. Although American, Scott has developed a keen interest in cricket and often opens the bowling for his Sunday side. Additionally a passion for cooking complements his never-ending search for good food and great wine.
Born in Sutton Coldfield, Paul, the bass baritone of the group, first discovered his love of music singing in the local church choir and joined National Youth Choir of Great Britain. He studied voice at the Birmingham Conservatoire and embarked on a career in opera performing the role of ‘Sarastro’ in Mozart’s Magic Flute on a tour of the USA after graduating. He has performed with opera companies and ensembles all over Europe, Japan and the USA. While singing in Turandot in the Netherlands, he heard that Tenors Unlimited were looking for a third member. When not singing or playing cricket with Scott and Jem, he enjoys cooking at his home in Surrey.
Having trained privately and at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama, his roles in theatre include Alex Dillingham in ‘Aspects of Love’ (national tour), creating the role of Jesus/The Man in ‘Whistle Down The Wind’ (Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham), PT Barnum in Barnum (Guinness Theatre, Dublin), Young Scrooge in ‘Scrooge’ opposite the late Anthony Newley (national tour). TV credits include Nature Boy (BBC). He co-wrote, produced and played the lead in a new musical ‘Nelson’ based on the life and loves of Horatio Nelson.
He loves touch rugby, cooking, food and wine.
