A serendipitous date this weekend has given Llandaff Cathedral the opportunity to add to the coffers of its organ appeal.

The 10th day of the 10th month of 2010 is being marked by the world-famous cathedral by Ten Tenors - an gala event with some of Wales' foremost tenors performing a selection of works from 7.30pm.

The world-renowned Dennis O'Neill is joined by the Three Welsh Tenors (Rhys Meirion, Aled Hall and Alun Jenkins); The Welsh National Opera's Michael Clifton-Thompson, Philip Lloyd Holtam and Howard Kirt; Jo Roach, Richard Allan and Sam Furness.

At 10pm, the climax to the event will be a performance of Nessun Dorma for which the tenors will be joined by Côr Caerdydd.

O'Neill told us: "We are all looking forward to the 10 Tenors concert on Sunday at Llandaff Cathedral. Personally I was delighted to be invited and to support their fund-raising drive. The programme will be a balance of arias, songs and duets and is sure to appeal to a very wide audience. It promises to be real 'fun' evening."
