Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra And Broadneck High School Present “A Celtic Collaboration”

An Irish Band, Lúnasa, Will Be Featured In This Collaboration


The Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra (CYSO) invites the community to enjoy "A Celtic Collaboration" on February 24 at 7:00pm at Broadneck High School.

The world-renowned Irish band Lúnasa will join the CYSO's symphony orchestra, chamber orchestra, senior flute ensemble and the talented students of Broadneck High School to present an evening of music. This performance is part of Lúnasa's U.S. tour, promising a unique blend of symphonic and Celtic melodies.

Lúnasa was formed in 1997 from members of popular Irish groups of the previous decade. An early review from Folk Roots magazine described the band as an “Irish music dream team.” The band’s complex arrangements and unique sound reshaped traditional music and energized audiences the world over. Critical acclaim followed, with The Irish Echo describing the band as the “the hottest Irish acoustic band on the planet” and MOJO magazine naming the band "the new gods of Irish music.” Billboard raved that “anybody who listens can’t help but find them contagious.”

The CYSO and Broadneck High School's music students have an unparalleled opportunity in the playing of Lúnasa’s music. This collaboration will showcase the talents of the young musicians as they come together to share the stage.

A pre-concert reception will be held from 4:30pm-6:30pm at Broadneck Grill & Cantina, located at 1364 Cape St. Claire Road in Annapolis. Passed hors d’oeuvres will feature chicken taquitos, Spanish meatballs and chicken quesadillas. The buffet will include a fresh fruit and cheese platter, vegetable platter with dill dip, and Broadneck Grill’s crab fondue. Drinks, included with a reception ticket, include chardonnay, sparkling wine, pinot grigio, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, sangria, draft and bottled beers, house margaritas, and a variety of sodas and tea.

Free parking is available at both venues. Individual tickets to the pre-concert reception are $45 and tickets to the concert are $35. A combined ticket to both the reception and concert can be purchased for $75. Tickets are available at
