Fort Collins Symphony “Celtic Fantasy” Virtual Concert
Maestro Wes Kenney and the Fort Collins Symphony invite you to enjoy the virtual on-demand concert “Celtic Fantasy.” Featuring a variety of traditional and contemporary Celtic music for harp, strings, winds, piano, and percussion this concert will highlight the broad symphonic traditions of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany, and Galicia. A wealth of Celtic folk songs, jigs, reels, hornpipes, and airs emigrated to Appalachia where this unique genre has influenced American music for more than 300 years.
This concert includes: Joan Trimble’s Irish Suite for Strings, Jay Unger’s Ashokan Farewell (from Ken Burn’s award-winning documentary The Civil War), Gaelic Storm’s An Irish Party in Third Class (from the movie Titanic), Jennifer Barker’s Suilean a’Chloinne (Children’s Eyes), Arthur Duff’s Irish Suite for Strings, Victor Herbert’s Yesterthoughts, and Gwyneth Walker’s Light of Three Mornings. Finally, Herbert’s Punchinello for Cello and Strings, while not exactly Celtic, is a chipper and cheerful concert bonus (think mischief-making leprechauns!).
