DAYTON, OH (December 16, 2014) – On Friday, January 16, 2015 and Saturday, January 17, 2015 at 8 pm in the Mead Theatre of the Schuster Center, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, under the leadership of Conductor Patrick Reynolds, will present From the Heart: The Texas Tenors, the third concert in the Kettering Health Network’s 2014–2015 SuperPops season.  Associate Sponsor for this program is Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP.

Over 100 million people from around the world tuned in to NBC’s America’s Got Talent in 2009 to see The Texas Tenors become the highest-ranking vocal group in the history of the show. From Alabama to Puccini, John Hagen, Marcus Collins, and JC Fisher bring their unique blend of country, gospel, classical, and Broadway to the stage with breathtaking vocals, humor, and cowboy charm. Their debut album, Country Roots—Classical Sound, has the distinction of being the only independent album to be number one on both the country and classical charts, according to CD Baby, and the winter of 2013 saw the release of their second album, You Should Dream, featuring a 65-piece orchestra and original songs to coincide with the December 2013 airing of their first PBS special, "The Texas Tenors: You Should Dream Live."

And now they bring the special magic of their music to the Schuster Center’s Mead Theatre stage to perform with our own Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra.  The Texas Tenors and the DPO will take audiences on a trip across musical genres from gospel to classical to chart-topping pop with heartfelt performances of “O Sole Mio”, “Nessun Dorma” from Turandot, “Danny Boy”, “Because”, “Wild Horses”, and “My Way”, as well as Broadway smashes such as “Somewhere” from West Side Story and “Music of the Night” from Phantom of the Opera.  The spotlight will shine on the DPO alone for a few numbers, including “Themes from Silverado”, “Phantom of the Opera Overture”, and “The Magnificent Seven”.  And, of course, The Texas Tenors will deliver some of the most recognizable and soulful country favorites, including “Big Country”, “Mountain Music”, “Country Boy”, “Country Roads”, “Rocky Top”, “Bless The Broken Road”, and “God Bless the USA”.  This January, audiences in Dayton are invited to enjoy and dream with The Texas Tenors to a sound as large and as beautiful as Texas itself.

Tickets for From the Heart: The Texas Tenors range from $23 to $78 and are available at Ticket Center Stage (937) 228-3630 or online at  Senior, teacher, student, and military discounts are available at the box office. For more information or to order subscriptions, including flexible subscription types that include performances by Dayton Philharmonic, Dayton Opera and Dayton Ballet, visit
