Saturday 3/17/18, 5:00-6:00 p.m.

A musical exploration of how classical musicians and composers have incorporated the music of Ireland into their performances and compositions.  We’ll enjoy beautiful and unexpected examples of classical music that has its roots in the traditional and folk music of the Emerald Isle.  Selections include Beethoven's "The Pulse of an Irishman," Sousa's "Overture to the Irish Dragoon," Grainger's "Irish Tune from County Derry," and many more.  Andrea Blain hosts.
