The 3 Tenors
TENORI’s story began in 2003 with 3 tenor colleagues from the UK. After realising that they all had father's that had died of various diseases when they were younger, they began producing concerts in aid of national charities close to to their hearts - Cancer Research UK, British Heart Foundation and the National Kidney Research Fund.
