Central Mass. Culture Vulture: Ronan Tynan Returns To The Hanover
Friday, October 25, 2013
The acclaimed Ronan Tynan returns to The Hanover Theatre in Worcester this weekend for one performance only on Sunday, October 27 at 2:00 PM.
Introduced to international audiences as a founding member of the Irish Tenors, Ronan Tynan quickly became known for his unique voice and ability to entertain audiences. His extensive schedule of singing engagements continues to involve venues around the globe from concert halls to baseball stadiums, and even performances for presidents.
A modern day Renaissance man, Tynan has faced numerous challenges with incredible success throughout his life. A double-amputee below the knees at the age of 20, he became a multitalented athlete, winning a total of 18 gold medals and setting 14 world records. After being the first person with a disability to be admitted to Britain’s National College of Physical Education, he became a physician specializing in orthopedics and sports injuries.
Although his musical talent was noted as a child, Tynan did not begin his first serious vocal studies until the age of 33 while doing his medical residency. He is a founding member of the famous Irish Tenors, which since their debut on PBS in 1999 have been acclaimed as gifted interpreters of a wide variety of music while breathing new life into traditional songs.
In 2004, Tynan moved on to solo stardom as a singer in the classical Irish style. His unique ability to touch hearts and stir emotions is a due not only to his extraordinary vocal talents but also to a warmth and humor that enraptures audiences.
The feeling is mutual, as the big Irishman has also fallen in love with America. In his words, "The thing I love about America is that there are so many people who want you to do well. They will you to do well. They encourage you, and they rejoice in your success. That's a great virtue. I think Americans are fantastic people, amazing."
Ever humble, Tynan is adamant that America has given him much more than he'll ever be able to repay. However, anyone who has had the privilige of experiencing a Ronan Tynan concert, who has been stirred by the beauty of his music and rolled with laughter at his self-deprecating humor, might respectfully disagree.
Full-price tickets for RONAN TYNAN are $38 and $48, with a 10% discount available for members of The Hanover Theatre, groups of 10 or more, corporate partners, kids, students, and WOO Card holders. Tickets are available online at TheHanoverTheatre.org, by phone at 877.571.SHOW (7469), or at The Hanover Theatre box office located at 2 Southbridge Street in downtown Worcester.
