Ceiliuradh 150:

A Musical Evening with Odhrán O Casaide and Friends

Thursday, November 9th

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Please join us for Ceiliuradh 150 that celebrates Canada 150 with a feast of Irish Music. This concert will feature some well-known classics from the Irish folk-music tradition, alongside original works with traditional and classical soloists for orchestra and choir, by renowned Irish composer Odhrán O Casaide.

In recognition of Canada 150, Odhrán O Casaide has composed a special piece, “Canada’s Promise,” which was created in celebration of the close relationship between Canada and Ireland. This piece will be sung by Sibéal Ní Chasaide, a charismatic young singer who has been described in the Irish press as “the voice of a Nation.”

The evening will also feature some of Ireland’s most prominent artists, including John Feely, Ireland’s famous international guitarist, and the Garda Band. Members of this group of Irish traditional musicians and singers have performed at venues worldwide, from Togo in West Africa to Carnegie Hall in New York, to great acclaim.

Ceiliuradh 150 will take place at 7:00 PM in the Cathedral Church of St. James, 65 Church Street, Toronto.

Tickets are available for $30 on Eventbrite.

This concert is supported by the Embassy of Ireland in Ottawa and Culture Ireland.
