MEET THE ARTISTS: The Ten Tenors
Boerne Performing Arts is truly bringing the world of performing arts to our community with the announcement of their 2014 concert series. After two sold out seasons which featured artists from Austria, Japan, Canada, Ireland and the United States, the tradition will continue in 2014 with artists from Australia, Canada,Ireland and the United States. The season ticket campaign is already underway with approximately one-third of the theater already sold out.
The Ten Tenors are the first featured performance presenting their “Broadway” show on Monday, January 27, 2014. 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, and The Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow. With an unparalleled palette of repertoire, these ten virtuosos will take the stage at Boerne Champion High School with much gusto and appreciation for the extensive range and quality of their voices.
From unassuming beginnings back in 1995, to a now platinum record selling and international touring act, the Ten Tenors is anything but standard. Their biggest break came in early 2002 when The Ten Tenors were invited to perform at the German entry selection event in anticipation of the Eurovision Song Contest. Within hours, they had sold out an entire tour and were well on their way to becoming one of the most successful touring acts in Germany. Further European and Asian countries followed and in 2003 they made their U.S. debut. Nowadays, The Ten Tenors circle the globe ten months of the year, performing approximately 250 shows on five different continents around the world.
In 2008, The Ten Tenors U.S. tour included six sold out performances at The Majestic Theater in San Antonio, followed by a five-month run that crisscrossed the country through over 20 states. They are presently working on their new production of “Broadway Hits” that will be the show presented in Boerne for the opening of the 2014 Series.
