Tucson– The Southern Arizona Women’s Chorus will present A Celtic Celebration! Dec.13 and 15 with authentic Celtic choral music from the British Isles – from soulful airs and lively jigs to energetic reels.
The chorus will be joined by pipers, country dancers and highland dancers of the Seven Pipers Scottish Society of Tucson, along with the Tucson and District Pipe Band, the Irish band Scatter the Dust and Awen Rising Folk Chamber Ensemble.
Longtime SAWC Music Director Terrie Ashbaugh conducts this spirited program of traditional favorites the whole family can enjoy. She said two of the more familiar songs are The Voice as sung by the Celtic Women or the Parting Glass, a popular tune sung in pubs.
The concerts will be presented on Friday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. Ascension Lutheran Church, 1220 W. Magee Road (just east of La Canada Drive) and on Sunday, Dec. 15 at 3 p.m. at Catalina United Methodist Church, 2700 E. Speedway Blvd.
