This album was followed by "A Collection of Broadway and American Classics," which debuted in August 2018 at No.1 on the Billboard Classical Chart. The Tenors new album, “Outside The Lines,” comes out this May. Tickets to the virtual, live streamed April 11, 2021 performance are $50 per household. For tickets, visit www.AttheMAC.org.
