DES MOINES — Des Moines Performing Arts and Live Nation are pleased to present The Tenors at the Civic Center on Sunday, June 9 at 7:30 p.m. Formerly known as The Canadian Tenors, The Tenors have exploded into a worldwide phenomenon and now bring their acclaimed live show to Des Moines for the very first time!

Tickets to The Tenors are on sale now at the Civic Center Ticket Office, all Ticketmaster locations, charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000 and online at DesMoinesPerformingArts.org. Groups of 15 or more should call (515) 246-2340.

Since bounding onto the music scene five years ago, The Tenors — Fraser Walters, Clifton Murray, Victor Micallef and Remigio Pereira - have logged more than 500 performances, thrilling audiences around the world with their powerful voices and memorable melodies. The blend of classical music, contemporary pop and their undeniable charm has garnered them international success with music lovers of all ages.  

For their live performance, The Tenors will draw selections from their new album, “Lead With Your Heart,” as well as some of their past hits. “Lead With Your Heart,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard crossover charts, stretches the boundaries of classical crossover by combining classic songs and modern hits. From cover features such as Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young” and Elton John’s “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word” to the inspirational anthem “Amazing Grace”, and one of the most recognizable and heroic Tenor arias, “Nessun Dorma”, the diverse track list features a mix of pop favorites and classical staples along with new compositions written and co-written by The Tenors.

In the past two years alone, The Tenors have performed worldwide and shared the stage with such legendary artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion (on the Oprah show), Sting and Paul McCartney, just to name a few. More recently, The Tenors were the featured performers on two primetime international broadcasts: The Emmy Awards live from Los Angeles and The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations from Windsor Castle in the UK, where they performed for Her Majesty.
