The Ten Tenors
If you haven?t heard these guys, get your hands on a copy. They are ten Australian men who met at university in 1995 and have shot to international acclaim since performing as surprise guest artists at the Eurovision Grand Prix de la Chanson held in Kiel, Germany. Despite their success overseas, they have only recently enjoyed a larger profile in Australia, and recently conducted their Australian tour with roaring success. Their compilation album, “Tenology – The Best of The Ten Tenors so far…”, recently reached Gold status and it?s easy to hear why. Their ten voices blend in perfect unity, and with their combination of classic rock, ballads, and opera ?without the boring bits?, they find their niche with a wide variety of audiences. www.thetentenors.com.
