Christmas music embodies the spirit of the season, much like the National Anthem evokes Independence Day and the ambient compositions of Philip Glass reflect the existential angst of Valentine’s Day. Treat ears to yuletide tunes with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get a 100- or 200-level ticket to see the Celtic Tenors Holiday Concert at 8 p.m. on Friday, December 3 at the Ryan Center in Kingston (a $37.50 value). Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson, and Daryl Simpson align their mellifluous brogues to sweeten ears and the mass of nougat nestled between them with classical melodies. Inflate hearts to Grinch-dwarfing sizes with timeless carols that signal the imminent arrival of St. Nick, who historically sweeps chimneys and leaves gifts for school children with perfect attendance records.
- The Tenors sing with the practiced ease of singers who know each others voices like a comfortable pillow. – Aaron R. Conklin, The Capitol Times
