On Dec. 8, 2014, Carnegie Hall presented "Celtic Twilight Christmas" Staring Phil Coulter, Andy Cooney with special Guests Geraldine Branagan, The Hibernian Festival Singers and Celtic Twilight Christmas String Quartet in a show to benefit Hope House Ministries.

Andy Cooney, with his outstanding voice and dynamic stage presence has been christened 'Irish America's Favorite Son' by the New York Times, is a title he truly deserves. Andy has been taking the Irish American scene by storm for the last 20 years. His unique tenor voice has been heard in concert halls internationally.

Phil Coulter is an Irish musician, songwriter and record producer. He was awarded the Gold Badge from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors in October 2009.

Coulter has amassed 23 platinum discs, 39 gold discs, 52 silver discs, two Grand Prix Eurovision awards; five Ivor Novello Awards, which includes Songwriter of the Year; three American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers awards; a Grammy Nomination; a Meteor Award, a National Entertainment Award and a Rose d'or d'Antibes. He is one of the biggest record sellers in his native land.

Geraldine Branagan was one of the most glamorous starts of the 1980's with hit records worldwide. She then swapped careers and devoted her time to raising her six children with husband Phil Coulter. She has recently made her return to singing and has been busy ever since traveling worldwide.

The Hibernian Festival Singers were formed in 1980 under the leadership of Ronnie Allen as a way to bring some of the greatest Irish music to their local community. They have grown from a 12 person community chorus into a 75 person choral ensemble that travels the world.

Hope House Ministries was founded by Father Francis Pizzarelli over 35 years ago and has touched tens of thousands of young people and families at risk.
