Friday night we welcome former teacher and one of the UK's most in demand operatic tenors, Martin Toal, to Headingley Carnegie. Martin features regularly in national and regional newspapers and magazines, and is frequently seen and heard on TV & radio. In 2006, he became a recording artist with the release of his debut CD "ARIA CELTICA". Martin is well known amongst rugby league fans having sung the national anthem before the 2004 Great Britain v Australia rugby league tri-nations final at Elland Road, Leeds, and as a duet with top soprano Lesley Garrett during the 2005 series. On 1st April 2007 he sang the national anthem at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff for the Football League Trophy final and on 8th September 2007, Martin will perform both national anthems at Wembley in front of 90000 people and a worldwide TV audience of millions for England's football Euro 2008 qualifier against Israel - the first competitive England international at the new stadium. Today, Martin will perform songs from his CD. For more details on Martin and his CD ARIA CELTICA, visit www.martintoal.com
We received a lovely email this morning from the dad of a family who attended the St Helens game on Monday night that we would like to share with you because it shows the unique atmosphere you help create here on match nights at Headingley Carnegie.
