Magical Strings performs its Celtic Yuletide Concert, an annual tradition since 1979. A grand gala of Celtic-inspired holiday music, this annual tradition features three generations of the multi-talented Boulding family -- playing Celtic harps, hammered dulcimers, violins, cello, whistles, concertina and percussion -- along with special guests: the award-winning Tara Academy Irish Dancers, vocalist Colleen Raney, Canadian fiddler Jocelyn Pettit and other special guests. At the height of the evening, the audience joins the festivities, with an invitation to don a costume and join the processional through the aisles with the musicians in the ancient tradition.

About the Ticket Supplier: Thalia Symphony Orchestra
n Greek mythology, Thalia ("thuh-LYE-uh") is one of the nine Muses - the goddesses who inspire poets and musicians to create their art. Thalia is also the name of one of the three Graces, the supernatural embodiments of beauty and charm.
The Thalia Symphony Orchestra began in 1949 when violinist, teacher, and conductor Mikael Scheremetiew founded it as an outlet for Seattle-area musicians. Seattle music legend Stanley Chapple led the orchestra for many years. From 1987 to 2010 it was under the direction of Dr. Eric Hanson. Since 2010, TSO has been under the direction of Maestro Stephen Rogers Radcliffe. The orchestra operates under the umbrella of Thalia Allied Artists, Inc., a nonprofit educational and arts institution.
