We’ve Only Just Begun

A Celebration of The Carpenters Greatest Love Songs

Sunday 20th May 7.30pm


Karen was the voice of the multi-hit making group The Carpenters who along with her brother Richard, scored an unprecedented seventeen consecutive billboard US top ten hits. The timeless quality of the Carpenters music makes it as relevant today as when they scored their first UK hit with Close To You in 1970.

Karen Carpenter had a unique voice, so unique in fact that it has proven almost impossible to duplicate its deep smoky emotional edge, creating that uniqueness that is so hard to perfect. Now for the very first time in over thirty years the voice that melted a thousand romantic hearts lives again through Toni Lee, in this 2-hour touring concert show.

We’ve Only Just Begun is a celebration of the Carpenter’s music and the spirit of Karen Carpenter. Every song in the show is a chart hit, brilliantly performed by vocalist Toni Lee, with her Big Band and singers. This high quality production includes an audio visual presentation.
