SouthWest Colorado Concerts Bring You, The Young Islanders at Montezuma-Cortez High School
On February 25, SouthWest Colorado Concerts will bring to Cortez the Young Irelanders, a highly talented troupe of young musicians and dancers who are world-class performers of traditional Irish song and dance. Every year, the Irish Cultural Academy brings together the finest young musicians, singers and dancers of the day to tour the world, promoting the great music and dance of Ireland.
These young performers are unique among their peers in that they are all world and Irish national champions in their disciplines. Members have performed across six continents and for numerous heads of state, including Irish and U.S. Presidents, Royalty of the UK, Prince Albert of Monaco, and many European leaders. Their performance venues include many internationally recognized places, such as the Beijing Opera House, the Sydney Opera House, the Kremlin State Palace in Moscow, the U.S Capitol, The Kennedy Center, and The Lincoln Center, to name a few.
Whether it be one of the much-loved vocal numbers like “Galway Bay,” the foot stomping beat of Kerry polkas, or a stirring air inspired by the Cliffs of Moher, this troupe delivers a performance which transports you right to a small Irish folk festival. The Future of Ireland’s culture is undoubtedly in safe hands with the Young Irelanders. This sensational act is an absolute must-see!
The Young Irelanders will perform in Cortez on Tuesday, February 25, 2020, at 7:00 p.m. in the Montezuma-Cortez High School Auditorium. Ticket prices are Youth $10, Adults $25, and Season (5 concerts) $60; all can be purchased at the door.
