This show was amazing. The intermittent dancing and the symphony added to this memorable show. We were not disappointed with our seats. When the Chieftans come into town, you must see them. You will not be disappointed.

NSO Pops: The Chieftains: __Lucky You

__Emil de Cou, _conductor


You might call it the luck of the Irish, but The Chieftains know it takes a workman’s discipline and a tradesman’s skill to make great music and stage a spectacular show for more than 40 years. And lucky you, this legendary Irish folk band is bringing their Grammy-winning hits and their troupe of musical friends to the NSO Pops just in time for St. Patrick’s Day! With a strong Celtic heritage and a pinch of good cheer, The Chieftains are here to paint the town green. Please Note: The NSO does not perform in the first part of the program.
