Sweet treats from Opera Cake
Opera Cake conjures up thoughts of something light, sugary and tantalising.
While London Theatre Voices specialise in music, rather than confectionery, the title for their Beverley concert sums up its approach.
"If you have not heard opera before, it is good introduction," said bass singer Andrew Tinkler.
"We keep it light. There is a bit of chat with the audience. Think of it as Mozart's big hits."

The Opera Cake, which is being performed at Toll Gavel United Church next week, is part of the wide range of concerts the group performs across the country.
This appearance – the Voices' sixth concert in Beverley – mixes excerpts from Mozart's best- known works with songs from musical theatre.
The first half will feature works from the composer, including arias from operas such as The Marriage of Figaro, The Magic Flute and Cosi Fan Tutte.
In the second half, the four- strong group, accompanied by pianist Simon Haynes, will perform songs such as Edelweiss, from the well-known musical, The Sound Of Music.
Formed about seven years ago, and featuring singers who have appeared with companies including the English National Opera (ENO), the group performs whenever they are all free.
Joining Andrew for the Toll Gavel performance will be the soprano Julie-Dawn Lloyd, who has sung with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
Mezzo soprano, Deborah Davison, who has spent several seasons with the Glyndebourne Festival Opera, will also be taking part.
The fourth member of the quartet, the tenor, Ben Kerslake, has performed with companies including Opera North and has appeared as a soloist at Sydney Opera House.
Andrew, a regular with the ENO, developed his love of singing when he became a chorister at Westminster Abbey at the age of eight.
"I just carried on from there," he said. "It is a good life."
