celtic sensations Natalie MacMaster, Donnell Leahy and family bring their phenomenal violin skills to the Helzberg Hall stage for an awe-inspiring evening of music. The couple, who each began their musical careers as children, married in 2002. Today, the duo have seven children, five of whom perform frequently with them.

Although they did not intend to perform with their children on the road, they realized early on that being on the road without their children was much more difficult than turning with them.

“We were initially reluctant to let the kids play. We were concerned that the expectations were too high,” said Leahy. “But one night we put Mary Frances on stage. Soon after, Michael wanted to play. And you have to reward the practice.”

MacMaster and Leahy have collaborated with classical cellist Yo-Yo Ma, bluegrass star Alison Krauss and banjo ace Béla Fleck.

“Love Is in the Air” is the latest show from Tenors TEN, which debuted in Adelaide, Australia on May 18, 2019. TEN Tenors’ latest show embraces love and features some of the most popular wedding love and first dance songs of all time. They’ll cover everything from pop songs with a twist to classic love songs, and even some of the most famous and touching love tunes around.

The idea was sparked by a conversation between DJ Wendt (producer / manager) and longtime tenor Paul Gelsumini while discussing Paul’s upcoming marriage. Paul planned to use “Perfect” for his first dance in hopes that the other tenors would serenade him and his new wife, Jessica. The day after the wedding, DJ Wendt phoned Stephen Baker (record producer / music director) with the idea of ​​an album and a show dedicated to the wedding’s first dance songs. “Love Is in the Air” hopes to bring joy and hope to its audience. It’s a chance to remember and enjoy a few laughs as the TEN Tenors use their voices and sense of humor to navigate love in all its forms.

Since their creation in 2015, The queen’s designers went from playing on the New York subway to sold out for the Blue Note Jazz Club and opening for the New York Philharmonic.

The Queen’s cartoonists play music from classic cartoons and contemporary animation. The performances are synchronized with the video projections of the original films, with the aim of creating a concert of classical music and jazz for all. Expect the unexpected from a repertoire that includes the golden age of animation, cult cartoon classics, modern video pieces, comedy and elements of a musical circus!

The six members, born on three continents, now reside in Queens, New York.
