Upcoming shows’ sheer diversity may banish the winter chill with cultural delights.

The Mattie Kelly Performing Arts Center’s offerings range from a Broadway classic’s Tony-winning revival to Celtic music and dance’s unbridled energy.

The New York Tenors, Jan. 12

It may be chilly outside, but things will warm up when The New York Tenors take to the main stage. Unlike the classical repertoire of the famed Three Tenors, Daniel Rodriguez, Andy Cooney and Michael Amante will showcase some of world’s greatest music that includes Broadway favorites, American Songbook standards and soaring opera selections.

Rodriguez, known as “The Singing Policeman” and “America's Tenor,” helped sooth the nation’s grief following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
