The group Nordic Tenors was established in 2003 as a reaction to the noticable gap between high quality musical experiences and mainstream entertainment in Norway. Nordic Tenors are three Norwegian singers – Jan-Tore Saltnes, Roald Haarr and Sveinung Hølmebakk that combine their musical quality with humour, dance, and other musical surprises. With this concept, the group has reached out to lovers of opera and fine arts and also to people who prefer more easy listening. Their repertoire stretches from Puccini and Grieg to The Beatles and Coldplay; from the most famous opera arias to musical theatre, jazz, pop and even yodelling and Bollywood music. Their award winning shows appeal to all everyone.
In 2007, Nordic Tenors was His Majesty King Harald’s singing toastmasters at his 70th birthday celebration in Oslo, and in 2008 they opened the new, spectacular opera house in Bjørvika, Oslo.
Nordic Tenors travel to around 30 cities all around Norawy each year with their Christmas concert “Christmas with Nordic Tenors”, and every year around thousand of people people flock to venues to hear their concerts. Obviously, Christmas songs make up the majority of the concert repertoire – from the virtuoso tenor songs, to the amusing Christmas medleys – combining the Christmas atmosphere with warmth, humour and the spirit of the festive season.
This year Nordic Tenors will sing at Olavshallen in Trondheim and bring joy and a holiday mood to their audience here in town. They will be accompanied by pianist Øystein Lund Olafsen.
