Celtic music concert scheduled Saturday

DANVILLE — The Danville Symphony Orchestra with guest artist Leahy, an Irish-music family band, on Saturday will feature a concert of fiddle-driven Celtic music, dance and vocals, augmented by keyboards and percussion.

The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. in the Dick Van Dyke Auditorium at Danville High School, 202 E. Fairchild St.

Taking the stage alongside the symphony will be Canadian musical phenomenon Leahy, an award-winning group of eight brothers and sisters.

In the United States, Leahy was the subject of the Academy Award-winning documentary "Music Most of All."

The group has received multiple Juno Awards.

The first half of the concert will feature original Leahy compositions including "Wedding Day Jig," "A Love Never Known," and "Gypsy Boy," along with Leahy arrangements of traditional Celtic works "The King's Dance," Anniversary Waltz" and "Cape Breton Medley." The second half will feature the Leahy original "Skater" as well as arrangements of "McBrides," "Seamus," "Czardas" and "The Call to Dance."

For adults, Section A tickets are $30 and Section B, $28; for senior citizens, $28 and $26; and for students, $15. To order by phone, call 443-5300.
