EAST LANSING, Mich. ― Multi-platinum international music ensemble Celtic Woman will bring its brand new show, “Voices of Angels,” to the Wharton Center at 3 p.m. June 18 in the Cobb Great Hall. 

“Celtic Woman” has a 12-year legacy of introducing the most talented singers and musicians from Ireland onto the world stage. The current group features an exciting line up of vocalists, from Susan McFadden, Mairéad Carlin and Éabha McMahon with the debut of Celtic violinist Tara McNeill. 

The tour set list includes favorites such as “Amazing Grace,” “Mo Ghile Mear” and “Danny Boy,” in addition to the live debuts of "My Heart Will Go On" and "Time to Say Goodbye,” from the group’s newest album, “Voices of Angels.”

The “Voices of Angels” album, released in November 2016, contains some of the most popular songs from the “Celtic Woman” repertoire along with several previously unrecorded tracks. All tracks include new orchestral arrangements recorded with the 72-piece Orchestra of Ireland. The disc debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard World Music chart and was the group’s first album to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Classical chart. 

Following its debut on PBS in 2005, “Celtic Woman” has achieved massive success encompassing 12 chart-topping albums, nine DVDs and nine public television specials leading to sales of over 10 million albums, with platinum success in nine countries.

Each of the 12 CDs, including 2016’s “Voices of Angels,” has reached No. 1 on Billboard's World Albums chart. Celtic Woman received its first-ever Grammy-nomination in the World Music category for its 2016 release “Destiny.”

Tickets to see “Celtic Woman” are available to purchase at the Wharton Center box office, online at the whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
