Cultural Arts Center Theater

$10 minimum donation

Come join the celebration, hear the tunes, sing the songs and dances of Ireland past and present. Performing Arts faculty and students will be performing. We will be joined by the Bessie Award-nominated company Darrah Carr Dance. They bring a bold new twist to conventional Irish dance. Their acclaimed performances draw from Irish music, step dance footwork and spatial patterns to create high-energy, rhythmically based work that is accessible to a broad audience. One of the featured performers of Darrah Carr dancers is Trent Kowalik. He is a Tony Award winner and the original star of Broadway's Billy Elliot!

This year, we will be honoring the memory of Thomas J. Moran for his humanitarian service, philanthropy and contributions as an Irish-American. The event is a fundraiser for Concern Worldwide US and in tribute to Tom's extraordinary commitment to the organization. Concern Worldwide’s mission for the past 50 years is to help people living in extreme poverty achieve major improvements in their lives that last and spread without ongoing support from Concern.

Light refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the event.
