International Tenor Performs in Hudson
November 22, 2019
Internationally-acclaimed tenor, Anthony Kearns, of The Irish Tenors, performed in Hudson on Thursday night, Nov. 14, at the Thompson Center for Athletics and Performing Arts on Presentation of Mary Academy’s campus. The concert included songs with the PMA choir. One of the songs performed with the choir was “America the Beautiful.”
“Presentation of Mary Academy seeks the best education for our students. We cherished the opportunity to bring the talented tenor, Anthony Kearns, to our school so that all might be inspired, especially the children who sang with him,” said Sister Maria Rosa, principle of PMA.
Kearns and the PMA choir were accompanied by David George of Louisville, Ky., on piano. Concert-goers had an opportunity to meet the artists after the concert.
Anthony Kearns took American television audiences by storm in 1999 as the youngest member of The Irish Tenors, with whom he has five PBS Specials and 12 CDs, many of which achieved gold, platinum and double platinum status, reaching top-ranking on the Billboard Charts.
Kearns performs an extraordinary repertoire, with music from Ireland to Broadway, to Viennese romance to Italian Classics, French art songs, and traditional German Lieder, the inspirational to the spiritual, and from operetta’s light comedy to the sweeping drama of Grand Opera.
He has performed in the world’s most prominent concert halls, on television, for major sporting events, and for charitable causes. He has performed for four U.S. Presidents, Pope Francis I, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for Medal of Honor recipients.
“The educational value for the students to work with a world-renowned artist – Anthony Kearns – as well as the opportunity to showcase the talents of our music department made this a night of great memories,” said Sister Maria.
