From Verdi’s “O Mio Rimorso” to “Danny Boy,” The 5 Irish Tenors cross genres and span generations of audiences in a special tour specifically designed for North American audiences that follows in the footsteps of the great Irish tenor John McCormack.

The 5 Irish Tenors stars tenors David Martin, Morgan Crowley, Ciarán Kelly, Alan Leech, and George Hutton.

Recipient of the Luciano Pavarotti and John McCormack awards, tenor Morgan Crowley debuted at Covent Garden’s Royal Opera House at the age of 20.

Finally, George Hutton has performed at the Royal Albert Hall, London and in Mozart’s Mass at the National Concert Hall, Dublin. Accompanying the five tenors is pianist, composer, and arranger Feargull Murray has been called “a marvelously sensitive pianist” by the UK Times and has composed an award winning musical adaptation for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

From “Will You Go Lassie Go” to Mozart’s “Il Mio Tesoro,” The 5 Irish Tenors will explore the history of music from traditional Irish songs to classic operatic pieces in various combinations from tenor solos, duets, trios, quartets, quintets and tutti.
