The Texas Tenors, symphony to team up
Performing a range of music from the country group Alabama to Giacomo Pucini’s Italian operas, The Texas Tenors will join the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra for an evening of gospel, classical and Broadway tunes.
The evening concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Grand Junction High School auditorium, 1400 N. Fifth St.
The Texas Tenors have traveled the globe performing more than 500 concerts since a 2009 appearance on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” a news release said.
“John Hagen, Marcus Collins and JC Fisher bring their unique blend of country, gospel, classical and Broadway to the stage, with breathtaking vocals, humor and cowboy charm,” the release said.
“The group’s debut album, ‘Country Roots — Classical Sound,’ has the distinction of being the only independent album to be No. 1 on both the country and classical charts,” according to CD Baby.
The Texas Tenor’s second release, “You Should Dream,” is set for release this winter. The album features a 65-piece orchestra and original songs, and will coincide with the December 2013 airing of the group’s first PBS special, “The Texas Tenors: You Should Dream Live.”
The trio has had collaborative concerts with numerous symphonies, such as the Houston Symphony, Cleveland Pops, Kansas City Symphony and Prague Philharmonic, and have performed for organizations and venues such as the Van Cliburn and Autry foundations, Conoco-Phillips, Houston Rockets, Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino Las Vegas, Royal Caribbean International and Pro Bull Riders World Championships.
