PFS presents Legends of the Celtic Harp

November 30, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

$21

Three of the premier Celtic harpers in the world take you on a dramatic musical journey deep into myths, magic and fabled history with this most captivating instrument. 

 Legends of the Celtic Harp is a blend of music and oratory, falling somewhere between concert and theater. It spans nearly the range of human feeling, from humor to tragedy, tenderness to rage, reality to mysticism, and more. The effects are powerful and exhilarating.

In “A Winter’s Gift” Patrick Ball, Lisa Lynne and Aryeh Frankfurter step into a magical world of Irish and English literature, Celtic legend and traditional folk beliefs and draw out tales such as A Child’s Christmas in Wales, chapters from The Wind in the Willows, and passages from Shakespeare, William Butler Yeats, and Thomas Hardy, and mingle them with beloved pieces of seasonal music. All of the music and all of the stories touch on the central message of the Christmas/Winter season. Hope. Hope for something wondrous. Hope for a light in the darkness.
