About event

Friday, March 2 

Get lucky.
Sail away to Bonnie Scotland and the Emerald Isle on March 2 with Smilin’ Isles. Felix Mendelssohn draws from traditional folk music to paint stormy, untamed landscapes dotted with overgrown castle ruins in his “Scottish” Symphony. Colorado uilleann piper Dirk Mewes joins us for The Brendan Voyage by living Irish composer Shaun Davey. This groundbreaking symphony takes you across the high seas tracing the incredible journey of St. Brendan’s epic 6th century voyage across the Atlantic in a leather boat. If you’re asking what the fugue are uilleann pipes?, they’re basically the rare Irish version of bagpipes.

Lawrence Golan, conductor
Dirk Mewes, uileann pipes
