Destino comes to Asheville

On Friday February 12 at 8:00 pm, Diana Wortham Theatre will host Destino, a trio of tenors, that fuse pop and opera to create what they dub as "popera". The three tenors had their own solo careers when they decided to merge their talents to form one group. They have been becoming an international success story ever since. From their website:

Destino is fast becoming Canada`s classical crossover sensation following the recent Canadian release of their critically acclaimed CD FORTE. Classically trained, award winning professional tenors Paul Ouellette, Joey Niceforo and Hans Munoz form Destino. Before collaborating as a trio, the three Canadian vocalists were in established solo careers, performing pop, opera, gospel, soul, R&B, jazz and musical theatre. Destino has received critical acclaim, selling out concert halls in Canada and the U.S. Their music is best described as 'popera' or 'pop with an opera flair,' that is sweeping musical charts thanks to internationally renowned recording artists like Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, Mario Frangoulis, Russell Watson, and many others.
