Individually, Leon Leontaridis, Joey Niceforo and Paul Ouellette are the celebrated young talents who have each been noted and awarded for their extraordinary talents. Together, they make up Vancouver based trio Destino, who are quickly establishing themselves as the group to watch in the international music scene. Their debut album Forte includes the first single “Show Me the Way Back to Your Heart” written by legendary songwriter Diane Warren.

Tenor Niceforo has performed internationally including New York, Rome and the Czech Republic and has been the honoured recipient of the ‘Italia Nel Mondo’. A prestigious award for “Italians of the World” with past recipients such as Luciano Pavarotti, Sophia Loren, Rudolph Giuliani and Franco Zeffirelli. Leontaridis has vast experience on stage having performed with the Calgary Opera and as a soloist with several choral and orchestra groups. Ouellette trained across Canada, including at the Vancouver Academy of Music and the world-renowned Banff Centre and NUOVA in Alberta Opera Companies. He has also performed with both the Vancouver and Edmonton Opera Companies.

Combining their powerful and commanding individual voices, Destino was born and is an extraordinary new addition to the popera genre that has been forged by the likes of Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban and Il Divo.
