International singing sensations the Ten Tenors will perform at Lutcher Theater at 8 p.m. Friday. Tickets are $45, $35 and $30. 

The group 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.

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

The Ten Tenors circle the globe 10 months of the year, performing around 250 shows on five different continents around the world.

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 as well as countless other venues throughout the world. The Ten Tenors most recent album, Nostalgica, featuring outstanding new arrangements of songs most requested by fans, was released in 2008.

Singing everything from pop to rock to opera and everything in-between, these international stars delight audiences with their talent, charm and wit. For more information on the Ten Tenors visit
