The Celtic Tenors make Nevada County debut
World-renowned vocal trio The Celtic Tenors make their first Nevada County appearance on Tuesday at The Center for the Arts. The Tenors will be accompanied by Irish pianist Colm Henry on the Center’s newly acquired Steinway grand piano. The concert will also feature members of the Nevada Union Chamber Choir under the direction of Rod Baggett.
The Celtic Tenors have established themselves as the most successful classical crossover artists ever to emerge from Ireland. In 2000, following an impromptu audition at EMI Music in London, the Celtic Tenors were signed on the spot to an international record deal, a highly unusual event that was the talk of the music industry.
The Celtic Tenors continue to reinvent the whole tenor idiom by pioneering a new style never before seen on the classical stage and by breaking the traditional stuffy tenor mold.
While each of The Celtic Tenors have been influenced by the musical traditions from their own individual parts of Ireland, Daryl, James and Matthew show great flexibility in melding their voices to suit the appropriate classical, folk, Irish and pop genres. The “Echo Award” in Germany for “Classical without Boundaries” was presented to The Celtic Tenors in recognition of this fact.
The Celtic Tenors’ live show is an experience overflowing with vitality and variety from start to finish. The unique voices, charm and wit of Daryl,
James and Matthew, combined with talented young Musical Director Colm Henry, combine an emotive journey with a thoroughly uplifting experience.
Equally at home performing to large festival crowds or intimate concert halls and theatres, and whether backed by a live band, symphony orchestra, solo piano, or even a capella, their voices and personalities always shine through alongside their undeniable Celtic charm.
With a total album sales worldwide, including compilations, of over one million, and a full international touring schedule, the Celtic Tenors have topped the charts in the US, Canada, Germany, the UK and Ireland.
