Due to high demand are delighted to announce a second date for the Anthony Kearns Concert on Friday 3rd September at 8.15pm. This gala concert has been added due the high demand for tickets, and interest from fans of Ireland’s Summer Opera Festival.

Kearns fills a unique place in the Irish music scene, having toured the globe with Double- Platinum ranked The Irish Tenors for over a decade in addition to developing a rich solo career. As a soloist, Kearns has performed for Barack Obama, opened California’s Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival for over 6000 people, appeared on international opera stages, and sung with hundreds of the world’s best symphony orchestras. Accompanying Kearns on Thursday and Friday evening are pianist Niall Kinsella, and Lynda O’Connor, lead violinist of the BVOF Orchestra.

“Kearns is a tenor with an easy manner, real vocal appeal, and ready high notes, rising to each decisive moment with quality to spare” …The Irish Times

Kearns’s beautifully spun Il mio tesoro was a moment of still beauty amid the turmoil. …The British Magazine Opera Now (of Anthony’s performance as Don Ottavio)

Anthony is often invited to perform at prestigious events.  He presented a remarkable program at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library to celebrate the late President’s Irish roots.  In 2013 Anthony sang during several Presidential Inauguration Events, and later in the year for an audience with US President Obama and Ireland’s Prime Minister Kenny at the US Capitol, to name but a few.  Dedicated to the greater good, Anthony makes time to sing for many good causes and charities annually throughout Ireland and America, including Autism Awareness, music education, and US Veteran’s causes.

Tickets for the additional Anthony Kearns concert, which will take place at Lismore Castle, are on sale now. It’s sure to sell out very quickly so if you missed out on the last one book now to avoid disappointment.
