COLDWATER – Highlighting the holiday season and back by popular demand, Three Men and a Tenor will bring their vocal talents with another rousing show filled with holiday spirit Saturday, Dec. 10 at 7pm at Tibbits Opera House.
Featuring the powerful vocal harmonies of Paul Felch, Chuck Colby, Mark Stiles, and Glenn Williams, the group performed at Tibbits in April including a special performance for students. This new show filled with feel-good Christmas favorites and original music is perfect for audiences of all ages.
Great pop vocal music, quick-witted humor, and overall likeability make The Three Men and a Tenor show a unique, unmatched musical experience for audiences. The group has a national touring schedule and has opened shows for entertainment legends like Jay Leno and The Beach Boys. They’ve performed the national anthem to start the NASCAR FireKeepers 400, and had a national PBS-TV special that was shown from Los Angeles to Nashville.
Three Men and a Tenor was formed by Felch, Colby, Stiles, and Williams in 1992 when the foursome were all members of the MSU Men’s Choir. Born and raised in different cities in Michigan, the group formed expecting to only sing one song together as added entertainment for a concert for the MSU Choir and Jazz Band concert in Grayling. Now, after 30-years together, they’ve won "The Best Entertainment in Michigan” four times, and presented nearly 4,000 performances, including two performance tours of U.S. Military Bases and Landstuhl Hospital in Germany for U.S. troops and their families.
Three Men and a Tenor have regularly sold-out shows at performing arts centers, theatres, and festivals and fairs including a long history working with schools sharing their love of music and their signature blend of powerful vocal harmonies and feel-good music for all ages.
This performance is made possible with grant funding by Michigan Arts and Culture Council and the National Endowment for the Arts as well as by the generosity of media sponsor WTVB AM 1590/FM 95.5. WTVB has been supporting Tibbits since the station first began broadcasting, with its formal sponsorship-partnerships beginning in the mid-90s. Throughout the year the station features “Tibbits Talk” every Tuesday at 8:45 am, with Summer Theatre cast members interviewed during the summer, and highlights of other community productions and events at Tibbits the rest of the year.
