The Irish tenor James Murphy – a founder-member of the popular Galway Tenors – has sold his business, Viviscal, to Church & Dwight, owner of Arm & Hammer toothpaste and Trojan condoms.


The sale price was 150 million Euros. Murphy owns more than 80 percent of the company.

So he’ll have more time now for rehearsal.

Viviscal, a hair restoring product, achieved sweeping success in the US after endorsements by actors Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.

    What’s with classical musicians and vanity? A friend of mine, one of Australia’s best young violinists has also made a fortune selling shoes that make you look taller.
