The Irish Tenors thrilled the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center on Monday. With over 200 attendees within the theater, the audience was swept away by the melodic songs of the world-famous music group.

The group is comprised of Finbar Wright, Anthony Kearns, and Ronan Tynan have been touring together as The Irish Tenors since 1998. They played at former president Ronald Regans funeral, and are considered one of the most successful Irish touring groups in the world.

Masters of their craft, The Irish Tenors played a mix of Irish and Celtic folk songs, exciting the crowd with their musical talents. Accompanied by the group was a full 30-piece orchestra, the group played a medley of songs, such as a rendition of Hallelujah.

I thought it was great, Evan Grover, a music performance sophomore at Marshall University, said. I love the mix of Celtic and new big band style.

The Tenors played a variety of songs, including a few hits by the late Andy Williams, such as Moon River and Dont Fence Me In.

I love the Irish folk music, and its been a great performance so far, Kevin Bailey, a music education sophomore, said. Bailey said Steven Lawson and Steve Hall were performing in the orchestra with the Tenors that night, and wanted to see them perform. I enjoyed the performance, Olivia Hay a violin performance freshman said. I loved the Irish Celtic music.

There was also a canned food drive at the performance for the Cridlin Food Pantry, with patrons bringing in non-perishable food to benefit the pantry. This performance is part of the Marshall Artist Series. The next performance will beEd Asner as FDR Jan. 30, 2013 at the Joan C. Edwards Performance Arts Center.
