The sacred Celtic tradition is a flame that ignites the imagination with captivating melodies and entrancing poetry. CitySingers of Hartford will explore this tradition and trace its evolution from ancient roots in concert on Saturday, March 9 at 4pm. Our musical journey will inspire our listeners with verse that reflects the Celtic spirit, and musical expression in chant, beautiful folk melodies and compositions by celebrated composers such as Turlough O’Carolan, Sean O’Riada, and Michael McGlynn. CitySingers will be joined by Celtic musicians known throughout our region, who will add traditional color and style to the music with Irish harp, wooden flute, fiddle, mandolin, concertina, bodhran and double bass, along with pipe organ and highland pipes. Suzanne Gates, artistic director.
The concert is free admission, suggested donation $20. A reception follows in the church hall.
