October 30, 2015

University of Wisconsin-River Falls students, alumni and community members in the St. Croix Valley Symphony Orchestra will collaborate with Anthony Kearns, leading Irish tenor, when he visits the St. Croix Valley for a rare solo performance on Sunday, Nov. 1, at 3 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church in Stillwater, Minn. Kearns will sing a variety of selections from “Bring Him Home” from Les Miserable, to his signature interpretation of “Grenada” and much, much more. The performance is open to the public.

The St. Croix Valley Symphony Orchestra will collaborate with Kearns, the Trinity Lutheran Choir and special guests Natalia Moiseeva, violin, and Phil Kadidlo, piano. Join directors Kris Tjornehoj and Carol Carver for an afternoon of international music and flair.

Tickets are available at the door, online, or by calling Art- Reach at 651-439-1465. There are limited VIP pre-sale tickets (deadline Wednesday, Oct. 28) for dinner, photos, and a private reception with Kearns following the concert. Visit SCVSymphony.org for more information.

Kearns is a classically trained tenor with the incredible ability to flawlessly sing what audiences love to hear. He is the consummate performer with universal appeal. Kearns establishes immediate rapport with his audiences, dazzling them with a rebirth of music they have loved for years: Broadway’s beautiful hits, the remarkable Mario Lanza songbook, Vien- nese romances, Italian classics, and the lovely lilt of Ireland. His astonishing talent lights up a stage; he enthralls crowds with the power and magnificence of his voice; and his all- encompassing repertoire. Bravos ring out all evening long at Kearns’ concerts and his audiences pull him back for encore after encore.
