Liu Huan, Warren Mok and Liao Changyong, three top-class Chinese tenors from the pop and classical fields, held a concert in Beijing on Tuesday which spanned several muscial styles.
The concert in the Great Hall of the People, beside Tiananmen Square in the heart of Beijing, was a small-size mimic of the "Pavarotti and Friends" charity concerts, an annual grand gathering of singers from all parts of the music industry.
It's the first time the three have appeared on stage together. They dressed casually and had fun with the audience, rather than treating it as a high-profile show.
They brought with them some twenty popular songs, including pop song The Moon Represents My Heart, and classic pieces O Sole Mio and Nessun dorma.
Liu Huan is one of China's modern era pioneers in pop music. His works include A Native of Beijing in New York, a TV drama theme song which became a huge hit across China in the early 1990s.
Warren Mok from Hong Kong is a Chinese tenor with an international career. He is the first Chinese artistic director of the Macau International Music Festival, and successfully led the festival to a new international standard.
Liao Changyong, a famous baritone, is the Chairman of Vocal Department in the Shanghai Conservatory of Music.
