NY Tenors visit area to deliver holiday show

Warren Civic Music Association will celebrate the holiday season with the New York Tenors.

The vocalists will bring their Christmas show to Packard Music Hall tonight as part of WCMA’s 2023-24 season.

The group is familiar to local audiences. The trio performed at Packard in 2019, and member Andy Cooney also had played two previous concerts for the association.

Cooney has been called “Irish America’s Favorite Son” by the New York Times, and he has played soldout concerts from New York’s Carnegie Hall to Dublin’s National Concert Hall.

Joining him will be Daniel Rodriguez and Christopher Macchio.

Rodriguez was a New York City police officer who first started attracting attention for his voice when he performed at events following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He has sung with the Boston Pops Orchestra and has appeared on “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Oprah,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Today Show.”

Macchio is a classically trained tenor who studied at Manhattan School of Music and has toured throughout the United States and Europe. He has performed with New York City’s Opera Nova Company and performed at the city’s Columbus Day Parade.

Joining them in Warren will be soprano Arianna Paz. She recently earned her master’s degree in music from New York’s Mannes School of Music and has performed with Long Island Lyric Opera, Mannes Opera and Classic Lyric Arts.

The holiday concert starts at 7 p.m. at Packard Music Hall, 1703 Mahoning Ave. NW, Warren. Single tickets are $40 and will be available at the Packard box office before the concert.
