Admission $15 in advance, $20 at the door, children under 10 free
Spend an evening enjoying the music and dance of traditional Irish and Italian weddings minus the bride and groom! The festivities will include operatic and instrumental favorites performed by the Riverside Opera company, led by Maestro Alan Aurelia, with Irish step dancing choreographed by Dawn Daniels. You will hear familiar pieces like the aria from Martha and excerpts from La Boheme, and clap along to the Irish Washerwoman’s Jig in this lively concert of family traditions. The concert features musicians Isabel Bruschi (violin), Kristian Marino (trumpet), and Brian Moses (piano). Winners of Richmond County Orchestra’s Young Musicians competition will also perform, along with dancers from Lydia’s School of Dance.
