The Three Irish Tenors celebrate Christmas at UWP
PLATTEVILLE- Rejoice during the holidays with the fourth event in the UW-Platteville, Center for the Arts Performing Arts Series. All the way from the Shamrock Shore, the Richard and Helen Brodbeck Concert Hall will be filled with the sound of The Three Irish Tenors in Christmas from Dublin on Dec. 3 at 8 p.m.
Filled with songs of the season such as "The Little Drummer Boy", "Adeste Fideles", "Silent Night", "Saviour's Day" and "O Holy Night", Christmas from Dublin is full of the warmth, charm and music - direct from the Emerald Isle - that has enchanted audiences throughout the world.
Christmas from Dublin features The Three Irish Tenors, Ciaran Nagle from Riverdance The Show, Anthony Norton from La Scala Milan and Paul Byrom, the John McCormick Tenor of the Year 2001. Joining The Three Irish Tenors will be an ensemble of musicians as well as special guest Jacqueline Whelan, one of Ireland's most recognized sopranos, who will accompany herself on the traditional Irish harp.
The Three Irish Tenors got its start when four friends met over a few pints of Guinness in McSorleys Pub in Dublin. They brought with them a wealth of diverse talents, energy, optimism and a sense of humor. Their aim: to sing songs and arias that would appeal to all generations, that could cross cultural and national boundaries and would be of superb quality. Together with their musical director, David Wray, The Three Irish Tenors have created programs of their favorite songs and arias, not only from Ireland but also from a truly international repertoire.
Since their first performance this talented and exciting trio has performed to packed houses throughout Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States. The journey for this young trio is proving to be not only a great success, but also a great joy. These three golden voiced tenors continue to captivate audiences with their infectious Irish charm.
On the same evening of this performance, a pre-show conversation will be held with a member of the ensemble. This event will take place at 7 p.m. in the Center for the Arts and is free and open to the public.
Reserved seats for this performance are $25 for general public, $22 for UWP faculty/staff and senior citizens, $10 for UWP students and $16 for children under 18.
