Irish tenor Anthony Kearns will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday at an intimate concert benefiting Calvary United Methodist Church in Arlington, Va.

Kearns, who will be accompanied by pianist Patrick Healy, is currently on a tour of the U.S. and Canada and last week headlined a concert on Capitol Hill benefiting ThanksUSA, a nonprofit that provides scholarships for the children and spouses of those in uniform.

The singer, a founding member of the popular group The Irish Tenors, in 1993 won “Ireland’s Search for a Tenor,” which propelled him to the national stage.

Last month, he reunited with The Irish Tenors at Wolf Trap in Vienna, Va., and at a peace awards ceremony honoring Tony Blair, the former British prime minister, in Philadelphia. In May, he sang “Amazing Grace” during D.C.’s Memorial Day parade (Hear the performance here), and he was featured at a choral tribute to the military at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

The Arlington performance on Saturday will include classical songs, operatic arias and Irish ballads. The doors open at 6:30 p.m., and tickets range from $25 to $125.
