The Arts Council has announced the The Arts Council Signature Series, offering unique opportunities to witness two shows featuring nationally and world-renowned performers.
The performances this season include The Young Irelanders at 7:30 p.m. March 6 at and 3 Redneck Tenors at 7:30 p.m. March 27, both at Pearce Auditorium at Brenau University.
Every year, the Irish Cultural Academy brings together some of its finest exponents of Irish traditional music, song and dance as part of the group known as The Young Irelanders. These performers are still in their 20s and unique in that they are all world and Irish national champions in their disciplines. In popular vocal numbers like “Galway Bay,” the foot-stomping beat of Kerry polkas or a stirring air inspired by the Cliffs of Moher, The Young Irelanders deliver you to a part of the world untarnished by modernity and breathtaking in its beauty.
Individual performance tickets for The Young Irelanders are $28 for adults, $25 for seniors ages 65 and older $18 for students.
The 3 Redneck Tenors were top 10 finalists on “America’s Got Talent” and have been thrilling audiences since 2006. In the melodic wake of the three operatic tenors comes a new breed of tenors from more humble origins, known as “3 Redneck Tenors: A New Musical Adventure.”
The musical comedy features classically trained veteran artists from Broadway and world opera stages is like “Greater Tuna” meets “Das Barbecu,” down home laughs with big city music.
“You know you’re a Redneck Tenor if you can yodel in the middle of “La Donna E Mobile” from the Verdi opera “Rigoletto” and not mess up your mullet or spill a drop of “Lone Star,” wrote the Fort Worth Star Telegram.
3 Redneck Tenors tickets are $32 for adults, $30 for seniors and $23 for students.
All tickets are subject to a 7 percent tax. For tickets call 770.534.2787 or visit www. TheArtsCouncil.net.
