Celebrating “Irish Eyes” With New March 2022 Performances!
The Florida Lakes Symphony Orchestra will present their Saint Patrick’s themed concerts entitled “Irish Eyes” with an appearance of “Soloists of the Orchestra”. This will be a smaller group of talented musicians who will passionately play a special “Les Solistes” repertoire of virtuoso classical and popular music. It will be a lilting and poignant picture of the Emerald Isle on March 10 and 11, 2022
Each evening performance will begin with traditional Irish melodies that will be performed with some unexpected tunes generated by Irish settlers in our Native Land. “Wearing of the Green” would be appropriate for this lively and moving concert. As usual, there are planned surprises for the audience to savor. It will be a beautiful new concert event.
