The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Here are five things about the clas­si­cal-pop group The Tenors, who struck a sour note with many Cana­di­ans on Tues­day when a mem­ber of the quar­tet al­tered the lyrics to “O Canada” be­fore the Ma­jor League Base­ball all-star game in San Diego.

Since their for­ma­tion in 2007, The Tenors have per­formed more than 500 con­certs on five con­ti­nents and made more than 150 tele­vi­sion ap­pear­ances, in­clud­ing at the 2014 Stan­ley Cup fi­nals, the Open­ing Cer­e­monies for the 2010 Van­cou­ver Win­ter Olympics and the 2012 Emmy Awards.

The group, for­merly known as The Cana­dian Tenors, cre­ated its lat­est al­bum “Un­der One Sky” over an 18-month pe­riod and it was recorded in On­tario, Los An­ge­les and Nashville with seven pro­duc­ers.

The Tenors’ third al­bum in 2012, en­ti­tled “Lead With Your Heart,” won a 2013 Juno Award for Adult Con­tem­po­rary Al­bum of the Year.

The Tenors — Clifton Mur­ray, Fraser Wal­ters, Remi­gio Pereira and Vic­tor Mi­callef — per­formed for Queen El­iz­a­beth in May dur­ing her 90th birth­day cel­e­bra­tion at Wind­sor Cas­tle.

The singers plan to launch a 70-city North Amer­i­can tour in September.
