Internationally renowned Australian group, The Ten Tenors, perform a variety of classical, pop and rock songs in this concert taped in Hamburg, Germany.
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.
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.
