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.
