‘CaraNua’ & Jason Tonioli in Concert
A Night of Piano Music and Celtic Voices
Ascent Construction and Davis Financial Present: “New Wings”
Tuesday, January 16th @ 7:00 PM at the Weber State Austad Auditorium
CLOSE YOUR EYES and let the Celtic voices of Ireland take you away. CaraNua was created as a unique celebration of Celtic Music by three of the lead singers of Emmy-Nominated Celtic Woman and Irish sensation Riverdance who have toured throughout the world. The singing group CaraNua (Gailic for “New Friend”) is comprised of Alex Sharpe, Lynn Hilary and Edel Murphy. Alex and Lynn were both lead singers with the world renowned Celtic Woman from 2007-2011 and both Edel and Lynn have been a lead singers touring with the Irish Riverdance production for many years. They all have outstanding voices and together they produce some of the most gorgeous, crystal clear harmony voices.
This is the first time former lead singers with Celtic Woman have collaborated together on a project since touring with Celtic Woman and this single night event will be the first time former lead singers from Celtic Woman have come together in the United States to do a concert.
Together with Ogden area piano music artist Jason Tonioli this November they released a full length album. They will once again be in Utah recording a new album this January and have decided to do a special performance while they are here working on the album.
Fans of the group Celtic Woman will not be disappointed with mix of Celtic/Irish favorites and new music that will be performed at this concert. You will also have a chance to hear songs from their new album as well as songs that will be recording in the studio while they are in Utah. Jason will also be performing a handful of his popular instrumental favorites during the show.
CaraNua’s unique and beautiful harmonies will take your breath away when performing many of the fan-favorites from Celtic Woman, including ‘Danny Boy’, ‘You Raise Me Up’, ‘The Blessing’, ‘Isle of Hope’ and ‘Shenandoah’, just to name a few. Before they left Utah (it was a very productive trip), they recorded a cover of A Million Dreams, from The Greatest Showman. The cover was inspired by Evermore, a unique park under development in Utah. The video was a success, accumulating over 60,000 views in a matter of weeks and was subsequently released on iTunes, and Remember Me (a cover of the Oscar winning song from the movie Coco).
Jason and CaraNua will also be joined on the stage by well known Cache Valley violinist John Knudson(Master of Arts Music), percussionist Sam Bryson(Bachelor of Music in Percussion) and the amazing VOCALIST Choir directed by Jane Fjelsted(Conductor, Music Educator, Vocal Instructor).
We invite everyone to witness this most awaited event and be thrilled with breath taking ethereal harmonies complimented by Celtic and world instruments to create a unique cinematic sound that is captivating and haunting.
