What better way to spend St. Patrick's Day than an afternoon or evening of Irish music?

The Middlesex Concert Band is pleased to present "A Celtic Celebration", a musical tribute featuring new and familiar Irish tunes. Let the band tug at your heartstrings with its beautiful rendition of "An Irish Tune from County Derry (O Danny Boy)". Hum along as they play three movements from Arthur Fiedler's favorite composer, Leroy Anderson's "Irish Suite". You'll be toe tapping to the first and third movements, "The Irish Washerwoman" and "The Rakes of Mallow", and you'll be moved by the second movement, "The Minstrel Boy". Try not to dance as the band will then play selections from Riverdance! And don't forget to save your energy for more hand clapping and foot stomping as the band keeps cranking out the tunes.

Be sure to participate in our raffle for one of several great gift baskets. Whether you can trace your roots to Ireland, or you're Irish for a day, you'll be entertained!
