The Greater Hazleton Concert Series Inc. announced its virtual March concert will feature Rhythm of the Dance.
This livestreamed event will be available to concert association members from March 12 to 18. It will be the final virtual performance for the season.
This incredible show, recorded in front of a live audience, features a wealth of Irish talent, including award-winning dancers, some of the finest Traditional musicians, and gifted singers.
The show’s producer, Kieran Cavanagh, is a promoter of international renown. His roster of concert successes includes tours with Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood and Ireland’s truly international star, Daniel O’ Donnell. In Rhythm of the Dance, he features 22 step dancers, three tenors and a live band, which consists of top-class musicians who play a vast array of musical instruments, including the traditional Uilleann pipes, Irish Bodhran, fiddles, flutes, accordions, banjos and whistles.
Rhythm of the Dance dancers are among the most accomplished Irish dancers in the world. With their graceful movement and disciplined control, it is often said that “they make it look easy.” What is not evident is the off-stage commitment, the endless hours of rehearsals and practice required to reach the pinnacle of Irish dance.
The gifted young cast of dancers, musicians and singers takes the audience on an exhilarating and exciting, energy-packed time trip through the ages from pre-Celtic times to modern day sounds incorporating pulsating rhythms, melodic music and eye-catching costumes.
One can be transported through the imagination from ancient mythology to the travels of the Irish emigrants from the rolling hills and stone walls of Connemara all the way to the modern skyscrapers of New York.
Although everyone wishes for a time when they can gather for a live event, it is the sincere wish of the Greater Hazleton Concert Association Inc. that this virtual performance will provide its membership with an enjoyable respite.
A link to the streaming will be sent by email to members as has been done for prior virtual performances. For more information, call Amelia at 570-788-4864 or Cynthia at 570-579-7110, visit hazletonconcertseries.org or on Facebook search The Greater Hazleton Concert Series Inc.
