February 13, 2016 at City of Jackson Carl Perkins Civic Center in Jackson, TN.
Anthony has sung with hundreds of the world’s best symphony orchestras, both with The Irish Tenors and during his solo concerts, including opening the prestigious Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival in California, singing to an audience numbering 6,000 strong, with the San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Frank Paul Fetta. Kearns also appeared in a highly successful PBS television special, Hallelujah Broadway with the Czech National Orchestra, touring with this production in the US and Ireland.
Anthony Kearns is a classically trained tenor with the incredible ability to flawlessly sing what audiences love to hear. He is the consummate performer with universal appeal. Anthony establishes immediate rapport with his audiences, dazzling them with a re-birth of music they have loved for years: Broadway’s beautiful hits, the remarkable Lanza songbook, Viennese romance, Italian classics, and the lovely lilt of Ireland. His astonishing talent lights up a stage; he enthralls crowds with the power and magnificence of his voice and his all-encompassing repertoire. Bravos ring out all evening long at Anthony Kearns concerts and his audiences pull him back encore after encore.
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. This past year 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.
