An evening with John Barry featuring The Ten Tenors
London, Royal Albert Hall, September 28th 2006
To coincide with the upcoming release of their Warner Bros. Records debut album 'Here's To The Heroes', Australian sensations The Ten Tenors will play the Royal Albert Hall on September 28th at An Evening With John Barry.
Legendary composer John Barry, who was executive producer on the album, will introduce the show and will perform as a special guest conductor of selected material.
The Ten Tenors will perform alongside The English Chamber Orchestra.
Paul Bateman will be the principle conductor.
Tickets will be available from the usual agents priced at £45, £39.50, £35 and £28.50.
Recorded at Abbey Road and produced by Simon Franglen (Russell Watson, Katherine Jenkins), 'Here's To The Heroes' finds The Ten Tenors backing by a 90-piece orchestra and some of the world's leading musicians paying tribute to the compositional film score icon John Barry and his lyricist partner Don Black.
"They are also so diverse with wonderful individual voices as well as a collective sound. Writing for them was a joy because their belief was so constant. A many headed group that pulls together? Doesn't happen often. Having worked with bands and orchestras over the years I know that's a rare commodity."
They gained an international audience following a phenomenal special guest appearance at 2002's Eurovision and their crossover sound earned a dedicated following for their live performances the world over.
'Here's To The Heroes' represents their first global album release.
