Fee Range: E

In 2002, The Ten Tenors leapt to international attention as the surprise guest artists at the Eurovision Grand Prix de la Chanson held in Kiel, Germany.

The press hailed the Tenors' clever and virtuosic medley of the finalists' songs as the highlight of the evening. Extensive tours quickly sold out as word spread that an exciting new musical force had arrived from "Down Under". However, what appeared to be an overnight success was the result of years of touring the weird and wonderful venues of Australian outback towns.

It was there that the group's obvious camaraderie developed and their unparalleled fusion of artistry, musicianship and comedy was born.

The ensemble formed in 1995 while the tenors were university students, studying for careers in opera. The Ten Tenors created and performed their first full-length show in 1998, while still full time students, and were undertaking an intensive touring schedule in Australia before the completion of that academic year. The Ten Tenors have been a committed musical tour de force ever since.

Heroically striding through the classical tenor repertoire, swaying through the ballads of the Neapolitan crooners, and highlighting their youth with critically acclaimed performances of rock classics, The Ten Tenors and their unmistakable Australian charm have captured the hearts of countless fans worldwide.
