    • What Would George Say about Our Dis-United States? Perhaps “We’ve Been Here Before…”
      Political turmoil. Scathing media attacks. Mounting distrust—of our federal government, and of each other. Sound familiar? The challenges faced by the new American government in its first decade bore some similarities to what we face today. And they were no less alarming. The first generation of Americans after independence was flawed, divided, and prone to. […]

World-famous Irish Tenor, Anthony Kearns, performs a solo concert at Williamsburg’s Kimball Theatre

One of the three world-famous Irish Tenors, Anthony Kearns, performs a solo concert at Colonial Williamsburg’s Kimball Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 21. His appearance is part of a U.S. spring tour that also includes stops in Washington, D.C., Dallas, Savannah, Ga., and Charleston, S.C.

Revered pianist Patrick Healy serves as an accompanist for Kearns. Selections range from the traditional songs of his homeland, well-known classics, to beautifully rendered opera and classical pieces. The duets with the young tenor and his accompanist are charming bits of theater, much enjoyed by concert attendees.

Kearns was born in Kiltealy, Ireland. He was selected as an original member of the famous Irish Tenors in 1998 at age 27, and his vocal range has added significantly to the sound and popularity of the group. With the Irish Tenors, he has appeared at many international venues including Wolf Trap, Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden and in a 10-part series for Ireland’s national radio and television broadcaster, RTE television, “The Irish Tenors and Friends.” The Irish Tenors have recorded numerous best-selling CDs and audio performances and continue to “sell out the house” in live performances. Their most recent Christmas Tour played to 15 venues across the United States and gave their audiences a full measure of “comfort and joy.”

Kearns has added to his growing demand in the operatic world by performing Rinuccio in Puccini’s “Gianni Schicchi,” the title role for the “Opera Ireland” production of Gounod’s “Faust” and the lead tenor role in the Royal Dublin Society production of “The Lily of Killarney.” In June 2011, Kearns received critical acclaim for the tenor role in “Don Giovanni” at Lismore Castle. With Opera Naples, he wowed his Florida fans in a delightful reprise of “Romeo and Juliet/West Side Story,” “Lucia di Lammermoor” and this season’s “Faust.”

Healy spent 12 years with the English National Opera in London as a voice coach and accompanist. He appears often on the BBC and tours the world as accompanist to great artists. Healy is known for his recordings and performances of Irish folk music and serves a radio host on RTE.

Tickets are $40 for general admission and $35 for students and seniors and may be purchased by calling 1-800-HISTORY or at the Kimball Theatre box office.
