Tenors Present an Eclectic Program


If music is your favorite form of entertainment, this is your night.

The evening opens with "Three Mo' Tenors in Concert" (8 p.m. KCET), a new presentation of "Great Performances" in which Victor Trent Cook, Roderick Dixon and Thomas Young perform a program that includes blues, gospel, opera and spirituals at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom.

Among the highlights are "Nessun Dorma" from Puccini's "Turandot," a Duke Ellington medley and "Midnight Train to Georgia."

Cook has sung under the batons of James Levine and Seiji Ozawa. Dixon recently appeared in Offenbach's "Tales of Hoffman" with the Portland Opera and Young, the group's senior member, has been a principal soloist in major concert halls around the world.

At 9:30 p.m., KCET carries "Johnny Cash: The Anthology," a 90-minute special devoted to the celebrated country star known as the Man in Black. Included are performance clips of "Folsom Prison Blues," "I Walk the Line," "Ring of Fire" and "A Boy Named Sue." The show also has interviews with Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, George Jones, Glen Campbell and Marty Stuart.

Tenors--A photo caption accompanying a story in Wednesday's Calendar about the TV program "Three Mo' Tenors in Concert" misidentified two of the three singers. Thomas Young is in the center; Victor Trent Cook is on the right. In addition, the story misspelled the first name of Rodrick Dixon.

If you're looking for something a bit more hip, we suggest "Reverb," the HBO music series returning for its fourth season at 8 p.m. Alternative-rock bands Coldplay, Remy Zero and Creeper Lagoon turn up on the opener.

Oasis, the Black Crowes and Guided by Voices are among the other acts set to appear over the course of 16 episodes.
