The whole thing is only an hour so park across the street and not in the parking structure, where you have to pay $10..

The weather was cool. I wore jeans and a nice top. It was very warm inside the theater, almost too hot in the balcony section..

A fine combination of talented musicians, dancers, singers and a story teller. Lively and full of fun and enjoyment. The last 15 minustes could have been cut as it had already felt complete before they went on just a wee bit too long.

Description

This St. Patrick’s Day concert features fiddles, uilleann pipes, whistles, flutes, Irish harp, bodhráns, storytelling, singing, and the brilliance of Irish dance. Prepare to participate in a good old-fashioned Irish sing-along led by Dubliner Laura Turner.

Not to be missed, this event was a sellout last year and is sure to be a repeat performance this year. Faith n Begorra to you all and stay clear of those mischievous little leprechauns. You’re invited to be “Citizens of Ireland” for the day!
