NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.-– The Ten Tenors are returning to the United States this December for an 18-date tour of the East Coast and Midwest. On Monday, Dec. 11, the Ten Tenors will bring their seasonal spectacular, “Home for the Holidays,” to Orr Auditorium. Show time is 7:30 p.m.
The Australian vocal group, whose voices generate “pure electricity and undeniable drama” according to the Los Angeles Times, are performing selections from their Billboard charting album, Our Christmas Wish. Proceeds from their album sales goes to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, an organization leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Our Christmas Wish features traditional standards such as “Joy to the World” and “O Holy Night,” as well as holiday classics such as John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over);” “Feliz Navidad” by José Feliciano; Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas;” and Mariah Carey’s evergreen hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Now enjoying their 20th year together, The Ten Tenors are known for their playful blend of rock, pop and opera. Variety describes the vocal group as “truly incandescent when performing at the full strength of 10” and The New York Times says their “unique mix of the traditional and unconventional offers a fresh and highly-original take on the staid traditions of opera.” The Ten Tenors have appeared on The Today Show, Oprah’s Australian Adventure and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, among others. More than 90 million people worldwide have attended their live performances, and they have shared stages with Lionel Richie, Rod Stewart, Andrea Boccelli, Willie Nelson, Alanis Morissette and Christina Aguilera.
