The Celtic Tenors – three tenors, one voice.

The charismatic, globe trotting trio are the most successful classical crossover act to emerge from Ireland.  They just sing songs they love, and they most certainly don’t take themselves too seriously.  It’s all about the music, the harmonies and the fun.
With over a million CDs sold world wide, The Celtic Tenors offer something truly unique.  The skill, range and ability of world class tenors, combined with the personality and fun of genuine performers.
With The Celtic Tenors, you will get more than a performance from world class artists, you will enjoy an evening to savor, with a sparkling good humored performance.  Despite their success, they love what they do and don’t take themselves too seriously.
Three unique solo voices, but One Tenor Sound!

It’s Christmas Time In Clayton

Carpenters Remembered

The holiday spirit is alive and well in Clayton. The Town sponsored a successful Christmas Village and Tree Lighting last week. This Saturday at 3 PM, the Clayton Rotary presents the annual Clayton Christmas Parade. Here at The Clayton Center, we have have been decking the halls in preparation for our annual December show – “We’ve Only Just Begun”: Carpenters Remembered.

Carpenters Remembered is the definitive show celebrating one of the most successful recording acts of all time. Karen and Richard Carpenter sold over a hundred million records in just over a decade and still hold the record for the most consecutive top-ten singles.  The dynamic combination of Karen’s voice and Richard’s compositions and arrangements created Grammy-winning magic and won them a worldwide legion of loyal fans.

This Saturday, December 10, at 8 PM, Michelle Berting Brett takes center stage accompanied by her 7-piece band of versatile Nashville musicians to recreate the sound of the Carpenters. In addition Michelle shares stories culled from extensive research and interviews with those who knew Karen and Richard both personally and professionally.  The result is a family show and an intimate behind the scenes profile of the pop music phenomenon that defined an era.
