The Irish Tenors at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts

i_irishtenors2014Add one more terrific show to your TIAS membership ‘perks’….Join your fellow Irish American Society members for the world-renowned Irish Tenors!

We have a block of 25 tickets reserved for this event. Our seats are in Orchestra Center Rows T and U. The tickets are normally $50, plus service charge and shipping/handling–upwards of $60 per ticket!

Never fear, our group discount brings the price down to $42.80 each, and the TIAS pays one flat service charge–saving big $$ for our members! So, as a small way to fill the society’s coffers, we’re offering tickets to dues-paying members at a flat rate of $45 per ticket. A terrific savings for prime seats, and you won’t have to pay a dime until funds are due on 15 February, 2014!

Lynette Gilmour Crouch will collect all funds on behalf of the TIAS at the February meeting or you may send a check/payment to:

Here’s what the Sandler site has to say about The Irish Tenors….

The Irish Tenors
Date: March 25, 2014
Time: 7:30pm

Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan have been touring together as The Irish Tenors since 1998, with sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall, Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, and major concert halls throughout the world. Their faces and voices are familiar to PBS audiences through several specials, including the “Ellis Island” recordings that sold a million CDs and DVDs.

They are surely versatile, but for many, Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan are synonymous with Irish music. There is an aching bittersweet quality to much of Ireland’s musical heritage, a melodic loveliness and emotional intensity that brings a tingle to the spine and a tear to the eye. The dazzling technique and depth of feeling that defines this musical genre, amplified to the third power, is the hallmark of The Irish Tenors.
