He went on to win many major singing awards and released his first album ‘Because’, produced by Phil Coulter, on the Sony Records label. Since then Finbar has recorded six solo albums and six albums with the world famous Irish Tenors with whom he has enjoyed phenomenal success all around the world. With The Irish Tenors, Finbar has performed all over the world in many prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall and The Irish Tenors have appeared in many successful PBS TV specials. Finbar has performed at many historical world events in recent times, including the reading of the Gospel at Pope John Paul II’s legendary first Papal Mass at the Phoenix Park, Dublin, in 1979; the impressive State Dinner given in honor of U.S. President Bill Clinton at Dublin Castle in 1995; and he performed live on ‘Good Morning America’ during its coverage of President Reagan’s funeral on Capitol Hill, in 2004. He has appeared in concert with such music legends as Monserrat Caballé, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and rock & roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis.

For all his devotion to the opera, Anthony has a deep, abiding love for the music of his beloved homeland. He says, "I take great pride delivering these songs of our people all over the world.” He has incredible vocal agility, flexibility and a sublime natural ability to color notes with grace and beauty. Whether in the realm of the classics or the traditional music of his homeland, the power and clarity in his voice expresses great truth and rich conviction. He has featured in many challenging Operatic roles, including Don Jose in Carmen, and Romeo in Romeo & Juliet, and has had many distinguished and acclaimed solo performances in his relatively short time as a professional artist.
