Irish Tenor Emmet Cahill to Perform Concert Benefiting Dunwoody Youth - Sunday, April 29th 7 pm at Dunwoody United Methodist Church

On Sunday, April 29, at 7:00 p.m. Dunwoody United Methodist Church welcomes Irish tenor, Emmet Cahill.  An award-winning Irish tenor and a principal vocalist with the renowned Irish music show Celtic Thunder, Cahill’s concert benefits The Summit CounselingCenter at Dunwoody UMC.

Proceeds are designated to serve youth in the Dunwoody community. According the National Institute of Mental Health, 1 in 5 children ages 13-18 have or will have a serious mental illness. Additionally, 50% of all lifetime cases begin by age 14, but on average there’s a delay of 8-10 years between the onset of symptoms and appropriate intervention. The goal of the Emmet Cahill concert is to enhance mental health care resources for youth in the Dunwoody community and provide early intervention.

Cahill is promoting his album “Emmet Cahill’s Ireland” which went to number one on the Amazon, iTunes and Billboard World Music chart. Cahill offers his interpretation of the best of the traditional Irish repertoire, including “Danny Boy”, “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling”, “An Irish Lullaby”, “My Cavan Girl” and “The Parting Glass.”  The Dunwoody UMC Chancel Choir, directed by Rev. Sonny Walden, and the Dunwoody UMC Youth Choir, led by Mark Lamback, will join Cahill for multiple songs.

General admission tickets are $30 and may be purchased online at or at the door. A limited number of Meet & Greet tickets, which include a pre-concert meeting with Emmet plus the concert, are available for $45.
