Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day with the QSC! “Letters from Ireland” draws on actual texts of letters written from Ireland to America, and weaves them into a fabric of traditional Celtic melodies. This suite is a powerful testament to the first generations of Irish immigrants to America. Other concert highlights include many light-hearted Irish melodies, along with Celtic group Britches Full of Stitches on traditional instruments.
