NOTICE: The concert scheduled for November 13 at the Pantages Theater in Minneapolis has been cancelled.

Fathers Martin O’Hagan, Eugene O’Hagan and David Delargy, better known to their millions of fans as the classical music group “The Priests,” will perform at Minneapolis’ Pantages Theatre Saturday, Nov. 13, at 8 p.m.

When “The Priests,” who hail from Northern Ireland, released their self-titled debut album in 2008, they had no idea how successful it would become. The album featuring traditional favorites like “Ave Maria” and “Pie Jesu” has sold more than 3 million copies, earning it a place in the “Guinness Book of World Records” as the fastest-selling classical debut of all time.

The collared trio has since released two other albums: “Harmony” in 2009 and “Noël,” a collection of Christmas music, in 2010.

“The Priests” donate a majority of their proceeds to a charitable fund that supports retired priests, helps the homeless, and contributes to the building of schools in Cambodia, Uganda and Thailand.

“As priests, it is important to live within our means, and we do that quite comfortably,” Father Martin O’Hagan said in a press release. “To redistribute the rest of our royalties elsewhere is, we believe, the right and proper thing to do.”
