Coming up later this month, Memorial City Hall is bringing us “Direct from Broadway-The Jersey Tenors”!

The Jersey Tenors are the newest Opera/Rock Mash-up sensation, creating an explosive blend of iconic Opera classics alongside Rock ‘N Roll greats like Queen, Elton John, and Bon Jovi – to name but a few. But! They are also Jersey Proud — and do not forget where they came from, with highlights from some of Jersey’s finest like Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Frank Sinatra, Bruce Springsteen, Kool and The Gang, and even Jersey Girl Whitney Houston!

This performance will be on Friday, February 24th, at 7:30 PM at Memorial City Hall. Tickets for this performance are available online or by calling the MCH Box Office at 903-934-7992.
