The Texas Tenors has all the looks of a great country band – but don’t be fooled by their black suits and cowboy hats. This trio returns to the North Iowa Community Auditorium stage after a sold out performance in April 2013. Combining breathtaking vocals, humor and cowboy charm, this charismatic and talented group performs great music from the worlds of country, folk, opera and Broadway.
More than 100 million people from around the world tuned in to NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” in 2009 to see The Texas Tenors become the highest ranking vocal group in the history of the show. From Alabama to Puccini, 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 Texas Tenors have traveled the globe performing more than 500 concerts in the last four years. They collaborated with numerous symphonies including the Houston Symphony, Cleveland Pops, Kansas City Symphony, Austin Symphony, Phoenix Symphony and Prague Philharmonic to name a few.
John, Marcus and JC have performed in more than 20 countries including a 24 city tour of the United Kingdom. In August 2013 they toured China. When not on tour, they can be found in several cities across the country for extended runs including more than 60 concerts each fall at The Starlite Theatre in Branson, MO where they were named 2011 and 2012 Critic’s Choice Group of the Year and Ensemble of the Year.
The Texas Tenors are always ready to give back to others through numerous projects including Homes for Our Troops, Child Fund International, The Mission Project and more.
Their Debut album “Country Roots – Classical Sound” has the distinction of being the only independent album to be #1 on both the Country and Classical charts, according to CD Baby. They also released a DVD in 2012, “The Texas Tenors Live in Concert.” In the winter of 2013 The Texas Tenors will be releasing their second album “You Should Dream” featuring a 65-piece orchestra and original songs to coincide with the December 2013 airing of their first PBS special “The Texas Tenors: You Should Dream Live.”
Now you can see them and hear their crystal clear voices in the intimate setting of the North Iowa Community Auditorium. For more information, visit www.thetexastenors.com, or watch a video of the group at www.niacc.edu/palvideos.
