Attention all lovers of magnificent tenor voices. The popular opera group, I Grandi Tenori, will have a performance at the Hilton Arts Festival on September 15, 2019.

This concert promises to deliver, with spectacular gusto, these tenors singing some of the world’s best-loved and well-known arias and songs.

Be sure not to miss a concert which includes classics like the great Nessum Dorma, but also crowd favourites like Funiculi Funicular, O Sole Mio and Time to Say Goodbye. Durban’s own Kananelo Sehau and Mlindi Pato, under the artistic directorship of Sanele Mkhize and directed by Kwazi Theophilus Mhlongo, will royally entertain audiences.

I Grandi Tenori, whose aim is to explore classical and operatic music, was established in 2011 and last year sang their first international concert in Singapore.

I Grandi Tenori In Concert, which takes place at 10h30 on September 15, 2019, is bound to raise the roof and bring on the goose bumps.
