Author: Arts and Letters


Legendary Irish band the Chieftains will share the stage with the University of Notre Dame Symphony Orchestra for two concerts next month at Notre Dame’s Marie P. DeBartolo Center for the Performing Arts and at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

The first performance, which will take place March 2 (Thursday) in the Leighton Concert Hall of the performing arts center, is sold out. Two weeks later, the groups will reunite at Carnegie Hall for a St. Patrick’s Day concert March 17 (Friday), featuring a variety of works, including music composed by Chieftains founder and singer, Paddy Moloney.

Tickets for the New York performance are available by calling the Carnegie Hall ticket office at 212-247-7800.

Conducted by Daniel Stowe since 1995, the Notre Dame Symphony Orchestra is an ensemble of more than 60 undergraduates, graduate students and faculty. Past tours include a visit to Southern California last winter, where the group performed concerts in numerous Los Angeles and Orange County venues.
