The Celtic Tenors are back! Direct from Ireland, they will be performing all of your favorite Irish and Popular tunes on St. Patrick’s Day, Mar. 17 at Carnegie Hall at 7:30 p.m. The Celtic Tenors are a three-lnan vocal group that includes Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson and Daryl Simpson. The trio has been weaving together an eclectic repertoire of Celtic, operatic and popular songs for audiences worldwide since 2000. What began as three very talented friends gathering on the operatic stage has exploded into an international and touring phenomenon that transcends the trio’s classical roots and embraces folk, pop and various other dimensions of musical genres.
The only tenor group with a truly global audience, The Celtic Tenors will give you a night to remember. Whether playing a neighborhood cathedral or major concert halls in international cities like New York, Amsterdam or Shanghai, you are assured of a professional, sparkling and most of all, good humored performance. They genuinely love what they do and you’ll see that shine through in each rendition of beautiful Celtic songs like the haunting Danny Boy and exhilarating Opera classics like Nessun Dorma.
The group was signed this summer to Decca/Universal Records and are currently in the studio recording a new album being produced by Charles Fisher, an award winning producer of hits in Australia and overseas for decades, with twelve Australian Record Industry Association (ARIA) Awards to his name, including a Special Achievement for his Lifetime Contribution to Australian Music. His credits include Savage Garden, The Hoodoo Gurus, Olivia Newton-John and many more.
The Celtic Tenors last cd release, Feels Like Home, celebrated the uplifting music of Ireland, Scotland , England and Wales, while borrowing a few songs from other cultures along the way.
“We cross a lot of borders when we travel, but we find that people all over the world are similar in many ways. Almost everyone is open to good music and an uplifting message. We have so many great fans around the globe,” says James Nelson.
From The Celtic Tenors, you’ll get more than a performance by world-class artists. You’ll enjoy an evening to savor and a night with singers, who despite their incredible success, don’t take themselves too seriously!
