Ceiliuradh 150: A Feast of Irish Music

When: Thursday, November 9th at 7:00 PM
Where: Cathedral of St. James, 65 Church Street

Early-bird ticket sales end Friday, October 20th!

Please join us for our Ceiliuradh 150 that celebrates Canada 150 with a feast of Irish Music. This concert will feature some well-known classics from the Irish folk-music tradition, alongside original works with traditional and classical soloists for orchestra and choir, by renowned Irish composer Odhrán O Casaide.

In recognition of Canada 150, Odhrán O Casaide has composed a special piece, “Canada’s Promise,” which was created in celebration of the close relationship between Canada and Ireland. This piece will be sung by Sibéal Ní Chasaide, a charismatic young singer who has been described in the Irish press as “the voice of a Nation.”

The evening will also feature some of Ireland's most prominent artists, including John Feely, Ireland’s famous international guitarist, and the Garda Band. Members of this group of Irish traditional musicians and singers have performed at venues worldwide, from Togo in West Africa to Carnegie Hall in New York, to great acclaim.

Early-bird tickets are available for a limited time at $25. Please click here for more information and to purchase tickets.
