The Ten Tenors
Genre: Variety Concerts
Country of Origin: Australia
From unassuming beginnings in the mid-1990′s, to a platinum record-selling and international touring act today, the history of The Ten Tenors has been anything but standard.
Formed by a group of college friends, constrained by the seriousness of their elite music school training, The Ten Tenors found infinitely greater pleasure in the art of entertainment than the art of opera. For years they honed their craft touring throughout the vast Australian outback – where the audiences are tough, but appreciate quality and know it when they see it.
The Ten Tenors' big break came in 2002 when they were invited to perform at the German television event, connected to the Eurovision Song Contest. Within hours, their tour was sold out and they were well on their way to becoming one of the most successful touring acts in Germany. Further European and Asian countries followed, and in 2003 they made their US debut. Nowadays, The Ten Tenors circle the globe ten months of the year, performing around 250 shows on five different continents around the world.
In 2006, The Ten Tenors embarked on their most ambitious album project to date. Recorded in studios in Australia, the US and London’s famed Abbey Road Studios, “Here’s To The Heroes” is now available in 27 countries around the world. In 2008, The Ten Tenors followed up with “Nostalgica” an album of the songs most requested by their fans and released to commemorate the groups’ ten years as a professional ensemble.
With an unparalleled palette of repertoire, The Ten Tenors have taken their passion for quality music and powerful singing to such venues as London’s Royal Albert Hall, the Sydney Opera House, The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles – their high-octane vocal power and warrior-like approach to live concert touring puts them in a class of their own.
