We've Only Just Begun - The Music of the Carpenters - LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE
Redland Performing Art Centre Musical Melodies Concert Series


Celebrate the legendary and heart-warming music of the Carpenters

​The Carpenters were one of the most successful and cherished bands of all time. Recording some of the greatest love songs in pop music history, they captivated not one but three generations of fans. We’ve Only Just Begun, a moving music-filled performance, will celebrate and highlight the importance and impact of the band, their music and their stories.

Australian music theatre star, Angela Lumicisi’s spellbinding performance follows Karen Carpenter’s transformation from a little girl behind a drum kit to one of the brightest stars of the ’70s. While Karen was entertaining and inspiring the world, Angela was an Italian girl struggling with growing up in the confines of her traditional life in Melbourne. Karen and Angela’s lives begin to intertwine through their struggles and their loves as Angela finds the strength to be the person she’s always wanted to be. Karen’s soaring and heart wrenching vocals spoke to Angela, ‘It’s like you’re singing to me and know what I’m going through, how is that?’

Angela Lumicisi channels Karen Carpenter’s unique voice to recreate the distinctive style that made the Carpenters among the best-selling artists of all time. Featuring your favourite hits including Top of the World, Close To You, Yesterday Once More and many more, We’ve Only Just Begun is a remarkable and intimate musical experience.

“Angela sounded as good as or better than Karen Carpenter, and with the audience singing along, [We’ve Only Just Begun] was an audience favourite too.”  Sydney Arts Guide, 2016

If you cherish the music of the Carpenters, if you long to hear it live again, if you love great singing and lush melodies, don't miss this fabulous show.
