Start spreading the news... The New York Tenors have arrived! Enjoy a night of Broadway, opera and American classics with three of New York's greatest talents on Saturday, January 12, 2013, at 7:30p.m. at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center at Northwest Florida State College in Niceville.

Daniel Rodriguez, Andy Cooney and Michael Amante – The New York Tenors -- will showcase some of world's greatest repertoire in their national touring show. Rodriguez, known as "The Singing Policeman" and "America's Tenor," soothed the nation's grief in the days following September 11. Cooney, christened "Irish America's favorite son" by the New York Times, has performed internationally, including two sold-out performances at Carnegie Hall. And Amante, "The People's Tenor," is a combination of All-American good looks, romantic Italian charm and an incredible voice.

Individually, the three men are superb, but together, The New York Tenors provide an overwhelming, "can't miss" showcase of some of the world's greatest vocalists and repertoire. Tickets are on sale now for $35 each or $30 each for groups of 10 or more tickets purchased together. For tickets, contact the Mattie Kelly Arts Center Box at (850) 729-6000 or 1-888-838-ARTS (2787) Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm or purchase online at

Tickets will also be available the night of the show, space permitting, starting at 6:00 p.m. At-the-door seating is the same price as advance tickets. There is a $2 per ticket Box Office processing fee.

The Mattie Kelly Arts Center is a performing arts venue located on the Niceville campus of NWF State College at 100 College Boulevard. The center is easily accessible via Interstate 10, U.S. Highway 285 and Highway 85 and the Mid-Bay Bridge, about 20 minutes from Destin and Fort Walton Beach and 15 minutes from Interstate 10.

Since the inception of the original The Three Tenors on July 7, 1990 in Rome at the Baths of Caracalla on the eve of the FIFA World Cup Final -- featuring the world's greatest voices, Plácido Domingo, José Carreras and the one and only Luciano Pavarotti -- the doors have been opened wide for other great voices, such as the Irish Tenors, The Canadian Tenors and many other talented and renowned performers.

Performing individually and in concert with The New York Tenors, America first met Daniel Rodriguez during some of the darkest times of our nation's history. He was the New York City police officer whose amazing voice soothed our grief in the days following September 11th. He continues to inspire, stir and embrace his listeners through his recordings and memorable live concert performances.

Michael Amante, affectionately known as "The People's Tenor," is a combination of All-American good looks, romantic Italian charm and an incredible voice. Legendary performer Tony Bennett is quoted as saying, "Michael's remarkable range of notes and his ability to sing everything from opera, to Broadway, to contemporary, gives this tenor an intimate connection with anyone who hears him."

Andy Cooney, christened by the New York Times as "Irish America's Favorite Son" has been taking the Irish-American scene by storm for the last 20 years. Andy's unique tenor voice has been heard in concert halls internationally, including two sold-out performances in New York's Carnegie Hall.

The New York Tenors combines the artistry of three men who alone are superb, but together provide an overwhelming 'can't-miss' showcase of song of the world's greatest vocalists and repertoire is not to be missed.
