What You'll Get
Music, like country gravy, is composed from classical traditions, personalized with modern overtones, and often hurled from a boat. Sing your southern heart out with today's Groupon: for $23, you get one gold-level ticket to The Texas Tenors on Saturday, April 23, at 8 p.m. The performance is held at Lowell Memorial Auditorium, approximately half an hour from downtown Boston in Lowell.
A Neapolitan blend of country, classical, and contemporary, The Texas Tenors made a name for themselves in 2009 as top contenders on America's Got Talent, earning their position as the competition’s top finishing vocal group. Turning ear-stalks with their genre-spanning renditions of My Way, Danny Boy, and Unchained Melody, the three offer operatic ear candy, runway-worthy eye candy, and mesquite-flavored nose candy. John Hagen brings the operatic noise, drawing on his tanker-like lungs and national experience to craft a classical sound which gets along with modern lil' doggies. JC Fisher, the romance-tending tenor, belts tunes from twangy country and gospel to show tunes and arias, and seasoned singer/actor Marcus Collins' silky vocal acrobatics add a contemporary edge. With an ongoing world tour, The Texas Tenors are a unique phenom in the making.
Gold-level seats offer the upper echelon of Lowell Memorial Auditorium seating, constituting the entire main-floor level and the best seats of the balconies. Lowell Memorial Auditorium's excellent acoustics are well-known, as the interesting Italian Renaissance Revival architecture keeps sound waves milling around the six Corinthian columns out front.

About Lowell Memorial Auditorium
Founded to commemorate local US veterans, Lowell Memorial Auditorium's imposing, neoclassical exterior is ringed with inscriptions immortalizing famous generals and pivotal battles throughout the years, including Bunker Hill, Gettysburg, and San Juan Hill. The venue's history hasn't been all serious, however—in its early years, shortly after Word War I, its most popular event was the weekly Bingo game, which often attracted up to 3,000 participants and prompted Life to call Lowell a "natural Bingopolis." The decades following saw everything from conventions and civic affairs to performances by Benny Goodman and the Golden Gloves boxing tournament. By 1979 the building was so worn down from floods, hurricanes, and economic depression that it necessitated a major renovation to bring it into the modern era. Today, its stage is fit for Broadway-scale shows, the behind-the-stage balcony is gone, and air conditioning protects against summer heat and litigious snowmen.
