A Celtic Tenors Christmas set at Hobart

Staff Reports

TROY — On Sunday, Dec. 6 at 3 p.m. at Hobart Arena in Troy, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra (DPO), under the direction of artistic director and conductor Neal Gittleman, will present A Celtic Tenors Christmas.

With a polished international reputation and just over a million album sales under their belts, The Celtic Tenors offer something truly unique — the skill, range and ability of world-class tenors combined with the personality and fun of genuine artists. They have performed together for over 14 years, and offer more than beautiful voices and musical knowledge; namely, the sound that evokes the very soul of the Emerald Isle.

Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson and Daryl Simpson are comfortable in all genres from classical and folk to Irish and pop, taking their audiences on a far-ranging musical voyage.

The Celtic Tenors have produced three platinum-selling albums as well as hits in the Top Ten in the U.S. In 2014, the Celtic Tenors were very happy to announce that they have once again been signed by a major label, signing a worldwide deal with Decca Records Australia through Universal Music.

Now, as the DPO expands its regional influence, the orchestra is bringing The Celtic Tenors to the historic community of Troy for a special one-day, afternoon engagement. The program lineup will be similar to the Kettering Health Network SuperPops concerts performed at the Schuster Center on the preceding two days, Dec. 4-5, but with a few local twists.

These three operatic magicians join the DPO at Hobart Arena on Dec. 6 to enchant audiences with their renditions of Irish folk classics and favorite Christmas tunes, including “Silent Night,” “Ave Maria,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” and “Joy to the World.”
