St. Patrick's Day is too great a holiday to celebrate only once a year. So the House of Blues is throwing a Halfway to St. Patrick's Day Party that you won't want to miss. Providing the music will be the Young Dubliners, a popular group that fuses traditional Irish folk songs with modern rock. With anthemic hits like "Rosie" and "Buy You a Life" drawing comparisons to The Pogues and U2, and an energetic live show on par with Phish and the Dave Mathews Band, the Young Dubliners are sure to entertain. The hard-working group has twice appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and shared the stage with the likes of Jethro Tull, Chris Isaak and Great Big Sea, to name a few. There will also be Irish drink specials, powered by Jameson, and plenty of Guinness on tap. Also performing will be special guests King Washington. Learn More

Concurrently with his post in Cleveland, Franz Welser-Möst became General Music Director of the Vienna State Opera in September 2010. In July 2011, the Bruckner Society of America awarded him the Julio Kilenyi Medal of Honor, due to his long-standing advocacy of the music of Bruckner.
The 2011-12 season marks the tenth year of the Orchestra’s partnership with Franz Welser-Möst. Together they have earned the orchestra unprecedented residencies in the United States and in Europe, including a biennial residency at the prestigious Musikverein concert hall in Vienna—the first of its kind by an American orchestra.
