Tenore, the award-winning group that burst onto the Canadian Gospel music scene in 2011, is coming to Chilliwack on May 11.
Tenore is made up of three tenor voices – Abbotsford’s Shane Wiebe along with Jason Catron, and Mark David Williams.
The group is currently touring in support of their self-titled debut album.
Recorded in Nashville and in Prague, the album includes unforgettable renditions of songs such as How Great Thou Art as well as traditional and classic favourites such as You’ll Never Walk Alone and The Lord’s Prayer.
As part of the tour, Tenore will perform at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on May 11. The concert starts at 7 p.m.
Wiebe, a former top-five contestant on Canadian Idol, believes the song choices are what endear audiences to Tenore.
“What’s interesting about our music is that the melody is always very familiar, allowing audiences to sing along. Tenore takes these familiar songs and infuses an adrenaline rush,” he said.
Williams said that the connection to the group’s growing fan base has been energizing and humbling.
“It’s amazing to watch how much we can accomplish together, but the true joy comes when we are able to hit the stage and share these treasured and timeless songs.”
“These songs are a natural fit for us, both in voice and heart, which allows us to effortlessly lead and connect with so many in singing new arrangements of these great classics.”
The group will perform for roughly 90 minutes with a 15-minute intermission.
Tickets are still available and can be purchased at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre box office, online at chilliwackculturalcentre.ca or by phone at 604-391-7469.
They can also be purchased at the House of James.
