Seven Irish Tenors

This evening Prue and I went to Hamilton to see these chaps... what an amazing performance they gave non stop singing.
The Seven Irish Tenors originated in Dublin more than a decade ago with the sole intent of showcasing to the world the finest young exponents of Irish singing. Although the cast changes as singers move on in their careers, there is always a minimum of seven singers on stage,  although the company sports twelve performers in all.
In this two hour concert performed entirely by The Seven Irish Tenors,  we heard  Irish favourites such as Danny Boy, The Rose Of Tralee, MacNamara’s Band, Phil The Fluter’s Ball, Galway Bay and When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, as well as more contemporary songs like You Raise Me Up, We Are The Champions, and favourites such as You’ll Never Walk Alone, The Rhythm Of Life and Bridge Over Troubled Water.
It was wonderful the way the interspersed opera and ballads. I am still singing and it is  midnight now and sleep eludes me at present
So if you have a chance to see this show I for one would thoroughly recommend it.
