Celtic Woman Add Australian Girls Choir to National Tour
The unique Irish musical ensemble Celtic Woman announced today they have invited fifty of the Australian Girls Choir’s brightest stars to join them on their January tour of Australia. This is an added bonus for fans and is sure to be a vocal and performance spectacular not to be missed.
In other good news, the group will be coming to Australia on a brief promo visit (Nov 14-16) ahead of their January tour to celebrate the release of their Christmas DVD ‘Home For Christmas’ rush-released on 8 November in Australia. The group has consistently achieved No. 1 positions on the ARIA Classical and US Billboard (World Music) Charts. Also to be released is an exclusive tour edition of their best-selling album ‘Believe’ (11 October).
The Australian Girls Choir has developed a reputation for inspirational performances to audiences across the globe. The angelic voices of the AGC have been heard at hundreds of performances around the world including singing for Nelson Mandela at World Reconciliation Day, Ellen DeGeneres’ welcome party, Opera Winfrey’s Australian shows, the Boy from Oz Tour with Hugh Jackman and Andre Rieu’s Australian Tour. Most recently, the AGC were thrilled to perform for Queen Elizabeth II and President Barack Obama at the official functions held at Parliament House in Canberra.
Earlier this year, Celtic Woman vocalists Lisa Lambe and Susan McFadden and Celtic violinist Mairead Nesbitt welcomed a new addition, singer Mairead Carlin, a talented young native of Derry in Ireland who already possesses a prestigious musical resume that includes performing at the 2013 BBC TV Gala concert "Sons and Daughters," a UK and Ireland concert tour with Don McLean, and performing for the President of Ireland.
Carlin is the 11th member to grace Celtic Woman's lineup since its formation in 2004. In that time, the group has emerged as both a spectacular commercial success and a global cultural phenomenon, while showcasing some of Ireland's most talented and charismatic young female performers. With an uplifting mix of timeless tradition and contemporary craft, Celtic Woman has transcended national and cultural borders to touch the hearts of a devoted international fan base.
