The 2016-2017 Southeast Missouri State University’s Bank of Missouri Touring Series will continue with The Ten Tenors, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 30 in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall at Southeast’s River Campus.
Direct from Australia, the group wows audiences with their unique vocal abilities and repertoire.
“I presented this group several years ago and am so happy to be able to see them again,” said Bob Cerchio, assistant director of Southeast’s Earl and Margie Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts. “The beauty of ten male voices singing in unison is absolutely breathtaking.”
“The Ten Tenors” are one of Australia’s greatest entertainment success stories, with more than 90 million people worldwide witnessing their unmistakable charm, camaraderie and vocal power. Following 16 years of sell-out performances across the globe, including more than 2000 of their own headline concerts, the group has cemented their place as Australia’s premier classical-crossover group.
Celebrated for their colorful repertoire, breathtaking arrangements and powerful live performances, “The Ten Tenors” respectfully tip their hats not only to the great classical composers, but to contemporary music’s most popular artists.
Amidst their own explosive live concert experiences and remarkable achievements including six platinum and gold records and over 3.5 million concert tickets sold, “The Ten Tenors” have also performed alongside countless music legends including Andrea Bocelli, André Rieu, John Travolta, Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush, Keith Urban, Rod Stewart, Alanis Morissette, Sarah Brightman, Willie Nelson, Katherine Jenkins and Christina Aguilera.
They’re no strangers to television either, with iconic appearances on some of the world’s biggest broadcast events including performing exclusively for chat show queen Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Ultimate Australian Adventure, appearing on the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon for an audience of 32 million viewers, and Poland 2012 UEFA Cup in Warsaw.
