CES at FSU Presents “Songs of Ireland: A Celtic Celebration”
Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, the Cultural Events Series at Frostburg State University will present “Songs of Ireland: A Celtic Celebration” on Thursday, March 7, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center.
The festive concert spotlights the glorious vocals of four tenors and four sopranos who have performed with Five Irish Tenors, Glen Hansard and Anúna, among others. Together with a pianist and three traditional Irish instrumentalists on uilleann pipes, whistles, fiddle and concertina, the ensemble presents universally loved songs and arias drawn from Irish traditional folk, opera, the Great American Songbook and Broadway.
Throughout the month of March, community members are encouraged to visit the Lewis J. Ort Library to explore a display highlighting the Great Hunger that affected Ireland from 1845-1852, and the contributions made to the United States by Irish immigrants.
This event is sponsored by the Lewis J. Ort Library in observation of Irish-American Heritage Month. The Cultural Events Series is supported in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council. On the web at msac.org. CES is sponsored in part by the City of Frostburg.
