Celebrate the magic of holiday music with Ireland’s most exciting young tenor Emmet Cahill when he presents his “Christmas in Ireland” concert at Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights on Monday, December 16 at 7:30 p.m.  

Cahill will perform holiday favorites, such as “O Holy Night” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” as well as classic songs from the Emerald Isle, including “Danny Boy,” “An Irish Lullaby” and much more. Cahill is also known for his very popular “song request medley,” which often springs surprises from the audience.

Having established himself as one of the most in-demand Irish acts in North America, Cahill has performed in over 80 cities, including a sold-out concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall.  He had the honor of opening the St. Patrick’s Day parade in New York City as well as singing at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Voted as “Irish Tenor of the Year” in 2013 by the Irish American Music Association, Cahill was also awarded The John McCormack Bursary for the “Most Promising Young Tenor” and was named the “Most Promising Young Singer” at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin.    

In 2011 Cahill was chosen to be a principal vocalist with the acclaimed Irish music show Celtic Thunder and has performed in over 350 shows with the group throughout the United States, Canada and Australia. With Celtic Thunder, Cahill has appeared on numerous TV programs (including “Today,” “Fox and Friends,” QVC, PBS), performed for the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon in Washington, DC and sang the US national anthem at Madison Square Garden in New York City.    

The star singer added "solo artist" to his list of achievements in 2015 and two years later, Cahill recorded his number-one World Music album ”Emmet Cahill's Ireland” on the Sony Music USA label. Cahill has performed as a guest artist with several US symphonies.  

"I'm really looking forward to coming back to the Chicago area with my Christmas tour. It’s always a pleasure to sing here, whether in a Celtic Thunder show or as a solo artist performing in a church or venue or as a headliner at the Chicago Gaelic Park Irish Fest. I’ll be sharing my memories of Christmas growing up in Ireland as well as my favorite Christmas and Irish songs. I'll be asking the audience to sing along with me – so have those voices ready and warmed up!"

Tickets for “Christmas in Ireland” are $40 and may be purchased HERE! or at the box office. Metropolis Performing Arts Centre is located at 111 W. Campbell Street in Arlington Heights.
