Ronan Tynan: Surgeon, Athlete, and Yes, Irish Tenor

Ronan Tynan Performance and Talk

Once again BU offered a full cultural menu last night.   I attended a concert and talk by tenor, Ronan Tynan, at the Tsai Center sponsored by the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center.  Many know of Tynan as one of the Irish Tenors but there is a lot more to this talented and hardworking artist.  He is a champion equestrian,  18-time Paralymbics Gold medalist, and a medical doctor.  Tynan is the embodyment of a happy fusion of art and science.

I then ran to Marsh Chapel to hear the Boston University Baroque Orchestra conducted by Professor Martin Pearlman, music director of the acclaimed Boston Baroque.  It was a marvelous evening.
