Red Faces Variety Show

Who Was There?

Singer/songwriter Rachael Leahcar’s dynamic range, explosive vocals and powerful performances have stunned audiences across the globe.

Rachael smashed Australian television records when 4.1 million people tuned in to watch her Blind Audition on the first season of The Voice (2012). With a career that has seen her release three Top 10 ARIA charting albums, tour her live show to sold out crowds and travel to Italy to sing with Andrea Bocelli’s orchestra, Rachael has shown that she is capable of achieving anything despite being legally blind.

Rachael’s latest album, Shadows, was released on April 7.  Shadows marks Rachael’s transformation from a shy teen to a strong young woman. Bolder than ever, Rachael is ready to expose not only her vulnerabilities, her fears and regrets but also to share her message of resilience and determination to face the world head on. With her signature, hauntingly-beautiful vocals, Rachael will reveal more of her story previously hidden in the shadows.

Extraordinarily accomplished, incredibly talented classical guitarist Emanuel (Manny) Auciello. Trust us. You need to hear this performance.
Manny holds a first-class honours degree in classical performance, as well as a Master of Philosophy degree, specialising in percussive effects on the solo classical guitar. He has travelled and performed both nationally and internationally across Australia, New Zealand, England and South Korea. Manny will perform for us on a bespoke guitar donated by Domenic Roscioli because that’s what he plays. The guitar (with case), valued at $2200, will be auctioned following this performance.
