WASHINGTON, Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Anthony Kearns of the PBS super-group, The Irish Tenors, is giving a Christmas concert with accompanist David George and the St Joseph's Chamber Choir at Kings Park's St. Joseph's Church on Friday, December 2, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. (Ticket information below).
Mr. Kearns, who was featured in the nationally-broadcast television special, "America Salutes You," will perform a one-night-only concert at St Joseph's Church, 59 Church Street, Kings Park, New York, NY 11754, before joining his tenor colleagues in California to kick off their annual Christmas tour.
Kearns said, "With the church as a beautiful setting, this concert will be a perfect way to begin the Celebration of Christmas." He continued, "During a recent trip to view the church, I performed a hymn at Mass. I was truly humbled by the round of applause afterwards I knew immediately a concert would be well received."
The program will feature "literally something for everyone"-- with favorite tenor songs, Christmas and holiday favorites—and of course, beautiful music from Ireland.
Mr. Kearns first took the American television audience by storm in 1999 as the youngest member of The Irish Tenors, with whom he has five PBS Specials and 10 CDs, many of which went gold, platinum and double-platinum. "We Three Kings" is their best-selling Christmas album and includes all of the favorite Christmas songs featured in their legendary Christmas tours.
Kearns' solo career includes high-profile celebrity engagements, major television appearances and concerts, leading operatic roles, and collaborations with the world's finest orchestras. He has performed for three U.S. Presidents, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and for Pope Francis I at the pre-Mass Concert in Philadelphia. He recently sang at the 9/11 National Memorial Museum Gala at the invitation of Chairman Michael Bloomberg. Earlier this year, Kearns headlined the New York City media launch and two concerts at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. as part of the world-wide commemoration of the 1916 Easter Rising.
"From Irish Eyes to Jingle Bells with Anthony Kearns" takes place Friday, December 2, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. St. Joseph's Church, 59 Church Street, Kings Park, New York, NY 11754. Cost: $30+.
