Omaha.com | Omaha, NE – You might think the Texas Tenors would sing only country songs, but they cover a lot of genres.
The group, which debuted eight years ago on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” sings classical songs, Broadway show tunes and pop music, as well.
They will perform with the Omaha Symphony this weekend in two Pops series concerts at the Holland Center.
Music Director Thomas Wilkins will lead singers and orchestra in a wide-ranging program. It will include hits such as the Eagles’ “Desperado” and Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA,” the hymn “Amazing Grace,” a medley from “Les Miserables” and a selection by Bruno Mars, among other pieces.
The Texas Tenors — John Hagen, Marcus Collins and JC Fisher — won three Emmy Awards for the PBS special “You Should Dream.” They’ve performed more than 1,000 concerts across the globe and have collaborated with the Cleveland Pops, Atlanta Symphony and Houston Symphony. Billboard magazine recently ranked the trio at No 10 on a list of the top classical artists in the world.
This weekend’s concerts are at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets range from $19 to $89 and are available at omahasymphony.org or 402-345-0606.
