Anthony Kearns Of The Irish Tenors To Perform At The Cherokee Ranch & Castle

Anthony Kearns Of The Irish Tenors To Perform At The Cherokee Ranch & Castle

The Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation today announced an exclusive engagement by internationally-acclaimed tenor Anthony Kearns for a Sunday afternoon concert and brunch event starting at 1 p.m. on October 14, 2018 as the brilliance of autumn bestows upon Colorado.

"We're pleased to welcome the sensational Anthony Kearns to our Western jewel for what will be a spectacular experience," said James A. Holmes, the CEO and Executive Director of the Cherokee Castle & Ranch Foundation. Tickets are $100 per person and can be purchased online at www.cherokeeranch.org.

Mr. Kearns, a member of the double-platinum, PBS super-group, The Irish Tenors, said he is thrilled to perform at the Cherokee Ranch and Castle in a setting of unparalleled beauty and brilliance in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The Castle grounds include remarkable landscapes, gardens and views while the Castle's unique collection of masterworks of fine art, sculpture and antiques attract and charm visitors from all over the world.

"I am looking forward to returning to the Rocky Mountain State during the height of the fall foliage season. Together, we will create a magical occasion," said Kearns, who has toured throughout Colorado with The Irish Tenors and also in a solo capacity.

Kearns took the American television audience by storm in 1999 as the youngest member of The Irish Tenors with whom he has 12 CDs and five PBS specials. Their CDs have gone Gold, Platinum and Double Platinum. American critics hailed Kearns as perhaps the most likely of the three (Irish Tenors) to "achieve the level of tenor super stardom enjoyed by Pavarotti and a handful of other singers."

Mr. Kearns, who has a robust international solo career, frequently performs on television, at prominent charity benefits, in operas, and with the finest symphony orchestras in the world. Known for his vocal range, power, and versatility, his solo concert repertoire draws on the same music as the legendary John McCormack, and American favorite, Mario Lanza, as well as songs of his native Ireland, inspirational and patriotic songs from the American Songbook, and well-loved melodies to sing along to. He will perform with accompanist David George of Louisville, KY.

Now living in the U.S., Kearns is an Irish ambassador of Celtic music history. He was recognized by the Irish Music Association as the "Best Irish Tenor" in the U.S. U.K., and European Union in 2010. In addition, he has performed in some of the most stunning castles and venues in Ireland and America - including Lismore Castle Gardens in Lismore, Ireland and the Irish Cultural Center and McClelland Library -- designed by architect Paul Ahem after a 12th Century Norman Castle -- in Phoenix, AZ. Kearns hails from County Wexford, Ireland -- home of Enniscorthy Castle, originally built in the 13th century - and worked in Bunratty Castle and Kappogue Castle in County Clare in his early career.

Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation is a non-profit cultural organization committed to preserving the natural environment, enhancing the cultural life of Colorado and providing educational opportunities devoted to western heritage, wildlife and the arts. The foundation programming has earned prestigious support from the Colorado Creative Industries, The Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, the National Trust and others. The Castle is an architectural masterpiece echoing 1450s Scotland. Unique in all the west, the 1920s landmark was designed by acclaimed architect, Burnham Hoyt and is situated on 3400 acres of pristine land. It serves as a vibrant venue for extraordinary entertainment, education and enjoyment featuring views of Pike's Peak and Long's Peak, and beyond.
