Described by a critic as “undoubtedly three of the most talented female singers to emerge from the local scene”, award-winning singers, Michelle Baird, Ceara Grehan and Lynne McAllister have brought their rich voices, unique harmonies and versatility to the stage as The Leading Ladies for twenty years. Each an accomplished solo performer, the ladies have all played lead roles in many major theatres, including the Grand Opera House, winning the AIMS coveted award for Best Female Singer in Ireland three times between them.
Brought together to perform at an event in the Odyssey Arena in 2002, the trio, realising how special their combined sound was, formed one of the first vocal harmony groups of the time. Winning acclaim amongst audiences and critics, their talents have provided multiple opportunities and experiences with requests to perform at events in venues including NEC Birmingham, Royal Horseguards London, Dublin’s National Concert Hall and Waterfront Hall. They also achieved a sell-out concert with the Galway Tenors at the Ulster Hall Belfast in 2011, shared the stage with the Three Tenors Ireland at Dublin’s National Concert Hall in 2018, performed at Belfast’s Opera in the Gardens, Derry Jazz Festival and have made numerous guest appearances on television, radio and online.
Join The Leading Ladies and their band in The Studio at the Grand Opera House, as they celebrate twenty fun and fabulous years together in a spectacular show that offers something for everyone! From classical crossover and musical theatre, to 40s/50s swing, celtic and chart hits – all performed in their own inimitable vocal arrangements and close harmony style.
