Ireland: Songs and Stories

Saturday, March 10, 2018 | 7:30 PM

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, the wearing of the green celebration of all things Irish, the Philharmonic presents an Irish extravaganza. The MacConmara Dancers from Akron will join us for some spirited step dancing, tenor Robert Frankenberry will sing some spectacular Irish fantasies, and our old friend Richard Travers will come all the way from Boston to tell us some stories and jokes and to lead us in songs from the old sod.
