Rockland Concert w/ Martin Mulvihill CCE Branch Music Students

Thursday, February 24th, 7-9:30pm @ Cultural Arts Center

Please join us for our 3rd annual CrossRoads Ceili which will begin in the Atrium with a cup of tea and home made bread & jam. Traditional Irish music and step dancers will warm us for the show that follows.

The Danu Gallery, Pearl River, will display an oasis of contemporary classics from admired Celtic artisans.

7:45 doors open to theater.
Manhattan Lyric Opera Company will perform some Irish classics followed by the Martin Mulvihill Branch of CCE who are students of The Pearl River Music School, teachers Rose Flanagan, Patty Furlong and Margie Mulvihill. The group consists of All-Ireland Champion medal winners in both band, solos, group and song. These young people are the best and brightest young stars on the Irish Music Scene and they are from right here in Rockland County.

Kiera McGeever is a Harpist in the group “Strings of Tara” founded by Eily Paterson. They have performed with Andy Cooney, Crystal Gayle, Ciaran Sheehan, Ronan Tynand and Gay Willis. Performances include Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall and the P.B. S. special “From Galway to Broadway” Kiera will give us some solos.

The Mulvihill group will also feature the newest young hot trad band on the scene Ceol Millis (Gaelic for Sweet Music). They will perform a lovely mix of lively tunes and wonderful traditional songs. The finale will include the students joined by their teachers and the famed O’ Flynn / O’ Sullivan dancers.

The event is free and open to the public. However, you will have the opportunity to support our RCC Students in their efforts to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity as they continue to build a home for another deserving family in Hillburn NY.

We hope you’ll join us for a great nights craic (Irish for fun).
