News from the Celtic Tenors/UK Concert Dates Spring 2011
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 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 have just secured their 8th International record deal and work has already begun on this album, with a release date scheduled for Autumn 2011.
The year ahead will also see The Celtic Tenors tour in the US, Canada, Holland, UK, and the Middle East. The group will also do a three week tour in China in September 2011 with The Chinese State Orchestra.
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.
With total album sales worldwide, including compilations, of over one million units, and a full international touring schedule, the Celtic Tenors have topped the charts in the USA, Canada, Germany, the UK and Ireland.
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 Rogan, 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 acapella, their voices and personalities always shine through alongside their undeniable celtic charm.
The Celtic Tenors:
- have sung leading roles with top opera companies and performed in oratorio and concerts across the globe
- have appeared on TV across the USA, Canada and Europe
- have produced their own German TV Special – “Ein Grosser Irischer Abend” which was broadcast to millions across Germany and subsequently broadcast as a PBS Special coast-to-coast across the USA, ’Celebrate with The Celtic Tenors’
- headlined Irish and Celtic Festivals in Europe and the USA and performed with orchestras including the BBC Concert Orchestra, The National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra
