The Canadian Tenors
Where: Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts
When: February 25 – 26, 2011 8:00 pm
The incredibly rich and powerful voices of The Canadian Tenors have thrilled audiences with an exciting blend of classical and contemporary pop music. These four gifted young men, with their diverse vocal styles, wonderful sense of humor and undeniable charm, are one of Canada’s most sought-after exports. Clifton Murray, Victor Micallef, Remigio Pereira and Fraser Walters move from powerful anthems to the most beautiful melodies in a unique repertoire sung not only in English and French, but also in Spanish and Italian, reflecting their multicultural heritage and establishing the group internationally.
The group has criss-crossed the globe from Las Vegas to Tel Aviv, performed for for President Bill Clinton, Prime Minister Tony Blair, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President George W Bush and have performed alongside such distinguished artists as John Legend, Wyclef Jean, Andrea Bocelli, Quincy Jones, Sting and Cheryl Crow.
The Tenors performed at Bryant Park’s Christmas Tree lighting in New York City on CBS Television, Tampa’s “Daytime”, CBS Morning in NYC and starred in CBC’s Holiday Festival On Ice airing around the world. They have been named the Canadian Ambassadors for Toronto’s 2015 Pam Am Games having written and performed the theme song (click on the first video to the left). The Tenors have even appeared on Oprah! The Times Colonist says The Canadian Tenors “are appealing because they’re funny, relaxed …spending an evening with them is like hanging around old friends - who can really sing.”
Their recently-released, holiday album entitled “The Perfect Gift”, went gold in Canada in only three weeks and will be released by Universal in the US in this November.
