Do you remember last summer, kicking back, relaxing and watching a little TV?  Maybe in between Antique Roadshows, in a momentary lapse, you changed the channel to another station and caught a little bit of America’s Got Talent. And just maybe, you were lucky enough to hear Forte and you thought to yourself, “Hey, these guys are pretty good!”  The tenor trio had audiences on their feet after each pop-opera-inspired performance. They even had the judges in the unusual position of agreeing and absolutely gushing. Although Forte finished fourth in in the competition, they won over millions of fans and since then have been on the road touring.

Forte features Josh Page, Sean Panikkar and Fernando Varela. Panikkar may be a familiar face to some. He starred in 2013 Fort Worth Opera’s production of La Bohème as the handsome and poetic Rodolfo.  For one night only, Forte will bring their powerful voices and unique blend of part-pop, part-opera to Bass Performance Hall on April 20. One lucky Big Deal winner will win a pair of tickets to see the exciting ensemble perform gratis.

You also won’t want to miss signing up for our other two exciting Deals this week – tickets to Texas Ballet Theater’s Balanchine & Beyond at City Performance Hall in Dallas, or tickets to see Pink Martini with Special Guests The Von Trapps at Annette Strauss Square at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.

PLEASE NOTE: Only Art&Seek e-newsletter subscribers can win the Big Deal.  If you are not a subscriber then take care of that first, then sign up below for a chance to see Forte.

UPDATE: We have our winners. Come back next week for some more Big Deals.
