UMW to Host Historic Concert

Legendary Three Tenors Singer Performs with Philharmonic

The UMW Philharmonic and Music Director Dr. Kevin Bartram announced that legendary tenor José Carreras has agreed to perform a rare concert with the orchestra on Saturday, October 17 in the William M. Anderson Center.

José Carreras is best-known for his record-breaking appearances with Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo in the Three Tenors. Now, for the first time in nearly a decade, and for the ONLY time tin 2015, this international superstar makes his triumphant return to America-at UMW!
Carreras is coming directly from Europe for this single performance. “I am thrilled to come to Fredericksburg for the first time and perform in this unmatched atmosphere,” Carreras said. “The program will contain great music from opera, operetta, musical, and song in an evening to remember!”

Tickets are now on sale at philharmonic@umw.edu or by calling (540)654-1324.
