WISH YOU WERE HERE & MY CHRISTMAS WISH

NOVEMBER 24, 2018

The TEN Tenors, one of Australia’s most famous musical exports, are returning to the McCullum Theatre this fall, for a six-night residency.  On the first few nights of the residency, the group will be performing repertoire from their latest album Wish You Were Here. They then switch gears, performing material from their hit album Our Christmas Wish.

Breaking the top 5 in Billboard’s Classical Albums chart earlier this year, Wish You Were Here consists of material associated with iconic performers who have passed on, including Prince, David Bowie, Michael Hutchence of INXS, John Lennon, Amy Winehouse, Queen’s Freddy Mercury, Roy Orbison and others.

Selections from Our Christmas Wish include traditional standards such as “Joy to the World” and “O Holy Night,” as well as John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Happy Xmas (War Is Over),” “Feliz Navidad” by José Feliciano, “White Christmas” by Irving Berlin, and Mariah Carey’s relatively recent contribution to the canon of holiday standards “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

The TEN Tenors will donate their net proceeds for every copy of Our Christmas Wish sold in the U.S. to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Their record sales have already raised over $1 million to the organization.

Now enjoying their 21st year together, The TEN Tenors playfully blend rock, pop and opera, and are “truly incandescent when performing at the full strength of 10” according to Variety. 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.” TTT 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 the stage with Lionel Richie, Rod Stewart, Andrea Boccelli, Willie Nelson, Alanis Morissette and Christina Aguilera.
