The only tenor group with a truly global audience, The Celtic Tenors, presented in cooperation with Irish Hooley, give audiences a night to remember. Whether playing a cathedral or major concert halls in New York, Amsterdam, or Dubuque, the tenors genuinely love what they do and audiences will witness this first-hand through songs like the haunting “Danny Boy” and exhilarating classics like “Nessun Dorma”. Celtic Tenors performances feature a host of classic Irish/Celtic tunes plus a dose of popular songs and a dash of good humor. These world class singers, comprised of Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson, and Daryl Simpson, have never been known to take themselves too seriously!

The Celtic Tenors have performed together for 15 years and have broken new ground by stepping away from their classical roots, and adding a more contemporary edge.  The group has No. 1 chart positions in Ireland and Germany, three Platinum selling albums, and was on the top-ten US Billboard and Canadian Charts. They were recently signed by Decca/Universal Records and are in the process of recording a new album following up on the success of their recent CD release, “Feels Like Home.”

The performance will be preceded by a free pre-show concert on the Cyber Café Knapp Stage from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. featuring holiday favorites performed by the University of Dubuque Jazz Ensemble, directed by Nicholas Bratcher. 

Generous sponsorship support of this event is provided by Irish Hooley.
