featuring world-renowned tenor and Disney Artist Nathan
NCP comes to Kearney August 23rd for a time to remember!
The Players will be joined by guest artist Nathan Pacheco for a
one-time performance at the World Theatre, as well as a morning
appearance on NET Radio's Friday
Live! broadcast from the Merryman Performing Arts Center.
This show marks the return of Friday
Live! after a two-month summer hiatus, and admission to
attend the broadcast is free.
Nathan Pacheco is a classically-trained tenor whose
musical style has roots in both Italian opera and Brazilian cultural
music. A producer introduced him to well-known singer Yanni, and Nathan
began putting lyrics and additional music to some of Yanni's most
famous works. After touring and recording with Yanni, Nathan gained
national attention as the featured performer in two PBS television
specials. He has also twice performed on the national broadcast of
Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. Nathan is signed to the Disney Pearl
Series label and recorded his debut album with the Philharmonia
Orchestra in London. Check out this short preview of
Nathan Pacheco's incredible voice and talent. (At the end, click on the thumbnails to hear more of his performances.)

d'oeuvres (included in the ticket price) and a cash bar. Following the
