AN AFTERNOON of opera and other vocal music is set to take place in Ipswich this weekend with some big singers aiming to hit some of the big notes.

The show, called A Feast of Song features a program of accomplished singers who will belt out a selection of popular arias, classics, jazz and contemporary songs.

Brisbane-based tenor Francesco Nucifora will be among the soloists to take the stage and is sure to mesmerise audience members with the power and beauty of his operatic voice.

He will pay tribute to classic Italian numbers including Santa Lucia, Mamma, Granada and O'Sole Mio.

Director of the show, Brenda Ryan said she had seen Nucifora perform in Brisbane and was immediately enthralled by his voice.

"So when the opportunity arose for Francesco to be a part of this production, I was enthusiastic to get him on board," she said.

Also headlining will be professional jazz vocalist Nicky Steel and soprano singer Laura Coall.

They will be supported by soloists from the Ipswich Musical Theatre Company among others.

Ms Ryan said audiences could expect an entertaining showcase of vocal music from a line-up of highly skilled performers.

The event will take place on Sunday at 1.30pm at the Old Courthouse located on East St, Ipswich.

Tickets cost $25 for adults and $22 for concessions which includes afternoon tea.
