Celtic Tenors bring eclectic mix of music to Chilliwack

Harmony-based trio will be performing at Chilliwack Cultural Centre

With bold harmonies and sultry vocals, the charismatic, globe-trotting Celtic Tenors are coming to Chilliwack.

A force on the music scene, this harmony-based trio performs an eclectic mix of music that shows off their flexibility in melding their voices to suit the songs they perform.

They’ll be at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Thursday, March 24.

James Nelson, Matthew Gilsenan and Daryl Simpson have performed together as The Celtic Tenors for more than 15 years and have learned to offer more than their beautiful voices and musical knowledge when performing. They combine the skill, range and ability of world-class tenors, with their incredibly charming personalities and genuine joy for performing.

Over the last two decades, The Celtic Tenors have established themselves as one of Ireland’s most successful international acts. Three of their albums have been certified platinum, and they have sold more than a million albums worldwide. Their success has made them the only tenor group with a truly global audience.

From playing in a neighbourhood cathedral or major concert halls in international cities like New York, Amsterdam, Sydney or Shanghai, The Celtic Tenors continually give good humoured performances.

The Celtic Tenors have broken new ground by stepping away from their classical roots, and adding a more contemporary edge to their performance. From classical and folk to Irish and pop, they have embraced a fresh and invigorating style that has allowed them to welcome a wider audience and won them critical acclaim.

The genuine love they have for what they do shines through in each rendition of beautiful Celtic songs, exhilarating classics, acappelas, and popular songs.

The Celtic Tenors are coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on March 24 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 for adults, $37 for seniors, and $35 for youth, and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469). Audience sizes have increased to 75 per cent capacity.
