The internationally acclaimed Celtic Tenors make their Rockport debut with a program highlighting many of the Emerald Isle’s most cherished songs.
The only Irish tenor group with a truly global audience, Celtic Tenors will give you a night to remember, performing a mix of classical music, opera, traditional Celtic songs, folk, and pop. Whether playing a neighborhood cathedral or major concert halls in international cities like New York, Amsterdam or Shanghai, they always give a professional, sparkling and most of all, good humored performance.
The group has its origins in a vocal ensemble called the Three Irish Tenors, who performed on RTE’s (Irish television and radio) Theatre Nights program in the mid-’90s. In 2000, the renamed Celtic Tenors released their self-titled debut album on EMI Classics. They have since released seven more acclaimed records, including Remember Me (2006) Feels Like Home (2011) and their latest, 2015’s Timeless. In their native Ireland, they are triple platinum selling artists and have performed with some of the world’s leading orchestras including The Toronto Symphony, the Cincinnati Pops, and the Vancouver Symphony orchestra. The Celtic Tenors are James Nelson, Daryl Simpson and Matthew Gilsenan.
