Emmet Cahill is an award-winning Irish tenor and a principal vocalist with the popular Irish music show Celtic Thunder. Mother of God parish is pleased to announce that Emmet will be in concert here on Wednesday, April 25, at 7:30 pm. You will not want to miss this! (View this video for a sampling of what you’ll hear.)
Emmet’s debut orchestral album, “Emmet Cahill’s Ireland,” went to number one on the Amazon, iTunes and Billboard World Music charts. Backed by the Orchestra of Ireland, Emmet offers his interpretation of the best of the traditional Irish repertoire, including “Danny Boy,” “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling,” “An Irish Lullaby,” “Wild Mountain Thyme” and “The Parting Glass.”
In addition to performing selections from his album, Emmet will sing Broadway standards (“Bring Him Home,” “Music Of The Night”), nostalgic favorites (“Moon River,” “Beauty and the Beast”) and well-loved hymns (“How Great Thou Art,” “Be Thou My Vision”), plus an occasional operatic aria that will showcase his classical vocal training received at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin.
General admission tickets are $30 and may be purchased online at http://www.emmetcahill.com/tour-dates/ or at the church. A limited number of Meet & Greet tickets, which include a pre-concert meeting with Emmet plus the concert, are available for $45.
It’ll be a special night of songs and tales with the Emerald Isle’s most exciting young tenor! For more information, contact Cindy Duesing at 859-512-1063 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
