Celtic kicks on the way to Rochester

March 23, 2013 by  

Hot on the heels of St. Patrick’s Day, a showcase of four very talented young Irish vocalists, plus an extremely gifted fiddle player, is coming to Rochester during the week.

Performing under the name ‘Celtic Woman’, this should be a great show for people who love Celtic music and enjoy ensemble numbers. Brochure printers may have been used to advertise and promote this exciting evening to people in this region.

Celtic music is loved worldwide, and this particular set-up has performed as part of the renowned ‘Riverdance’. During this performance, traditional and timeless songs and solo pieces, such ‘Danny Boy’ and ‘Ava Maria’ with feature alongside contemporary Irish pieces like ‘Orinoco Flow’ by Enya and ‘Harry’s Game’ by Clannad, as well as original songs by composer, David Downes.

This show originally appeared as a 90-minute offering on the channel PBS and was broadcast on more than 300 other stations, before being turned into a touring production. Celtic Woman has released both CD and DVDs through the Manhattan Record Company with the CD going gold and the DVD going platinum – so the group’s popularity is plain to see.

Ticket prices depend on selected seating, but range from $41.50 to $101.50 per person. Celtic Woman will be performing live on Wednesday, March 27, starting at 7:30 pm at the Rochester Auditorium Theatre in Rochester, New York.
