He continues; “To give an audience a taste of their music live, onstage, creates an atmosphere of magic and nostalgia for some and new discovery for others.”

Joseph Clark – The Music of Queen has all the elements to make for an eventful, memorable time out and audiences will enjoy an unforgettable 2-hour journey of pure nostalgic rock delight!

Joseph’s “Queen-roots” lie in the 90’s when he starred in Queen At The Opera, one of the most successful productions in South Africa. Apart from being a regular soloist with symphony orchestras in South Africa, Joseph has been the lead vocalist with the NNO (Noord Nederlands Orkest), since 2009, performing throughout the Netherlands, including the Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

Born and raised in Texas, Joseph left his ballet career in America when he was brought to South Africa to dance the lead role in Swan Lake and Romeo & Juliet.

He soon expanded to musical theatre and won immediate acclaim and national awards for dancing, acting and singing. Musical theatre roles include Buddy in The Buddy Holly Story, Riff/Bernardo in West Side Story, El Gallo opposite pop star Jason Donovan in The Fantasticks, Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar, the narrator in Joseph And His Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Anthony in Sweeney Todd and Whizzer in March Of The Falsettos.

One of the highlights of his career was singing for Nelson Mandela at his 85th birthday.

“For me Joseph Clark has long been one of the great interpreters of Queen’s music and he certainly doesn’t disappoint with this magical performance. His vocal versatility comes magnificently to the fore as he moves effortlessly from the quiet ballads, to blues, to rock.” – Journalist Peter Feldman (Artslink.co.za)
