The Tenors — Victor Micallef, Clifton Murray, Remigio Pereira and Fraser Walters — have inspired millions of music lovers with their rich harmonies, addictive charm and powerful songs. From Johannesburg to Shanghai, from London to Los Angeles, they have traveled the world for the past four years performing for world leaders and celebrities from Queen Elizabeth II in London to an appearance with Celine Dion on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Since their last special, filmed in Toronto, the Canadian Tenors have evolved into an internationally recognizable group, have added exciting new music to their performances, and are launching their new album as simply “The Tenors.”

This dazzling new concert takes place in the breathtaking 2,050-seat Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center, where The Tenors perform music from their newly released sophomore album Lead With Your Heart. Each act stretches the boundaries of classical crossover by combining classic songs, modern tunes and Spanish and French world music. From covers of Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young” to the inspirational anthem “Amazing Grace” and one of the most recognizable and heroic tenor arias, “Nessun Dorma,” the diverse performance features an eclectic mix of pop favorites and classical staples along with new compositions written and co-written by The Tenors. The foursome invites some of their friends as special guests to share the stage for this unforgettable performance.
