Known as one of the “Three Tenors,” Jose Carreras recently announced his intention to retire from singing this year on the conclusion of a farewell tour. The tenor is also due to visit Taiwan, and will hold a one-off concert in Taichung tomorrow at the National Taiwan University of Sport.

Carreras, Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti were known as the “Three Tenors.” The Spanish vocalist has performed in public for more than 60 years, since the age of eight. He was diagnosed with leukemia in 1987 but, after beating the disease, he decided to put his gift to use raising funds for cancer patients.

The 71-year-old, who will perform tomorrow with his nephew the Spanish conductor David Gimenez, the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra (NTSO) and Taiwanese soprano Huang Li-chin, is set to sing many of his classic songs.
