Fathers Martin O'Hagan, Eugene O'Hagan and David Delargy, better known to their millions of fans as The Priests, will perform selections from their classical music repertoire at the Palace Theater in Waterbury on Friday, Nov. 22 at 8 pm. 

Tickets for the concert are $55 and $35. 

Since the release of their debut CD in 2008, the internationally-acclaimed trio of Roman Catholic clergymen has sold more than 3 million recordings, signed a $2 million dollar contract with Sony/BMG, and has been featured in a popular PBS performance special. Their eponymous album sold at such a frantic pace that it secured them a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest-selling classical debut of all time, and since then they have performed to sold-out audiences in major cities all around the world.

Hailing from the Diocese of Down and Connor in Belfast, Ireland, The Priest are among the most recognized and successful acts in both the religious and secular worlds. Their audiences have included the British Royal Family and the Irish President, as well as the Pope and a crowd of 80,000 people in Hyde Park, England in September 2010. No ordinary superstars, these three humble men remain first and foremost committed to the cloth and donate the vast majority of their royalties to their charitable fund, which helps build schools in places like Cambodia, Uganda and Thailand, and looks after retiredpriests and the homeless.

Tickets for the Palace Theater’s presentation of The Priests are available online at www.palacetheaterct.org, by phone at 203-346-2000 or in person at the box office, 100 East Main Street in Waterbury. For more information, visit www.thepriests.com.
