Celtic tunes for kids Sunday

Howard Live


November 13, 2003

The Candlelight Concert Society's Performing Arts Series for Children will present "The Ensemble Galilei: Celtic Tunes, Ancient Tales" at 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday at Smith Theatre at Howard Community College, 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway in Columbia.

The group includes Liz Knowles, a classically trained fiddler from Riverdance; Sue Richards, a four-time U.S. National Scottish harp champion; Deborah Nuse on Scottish small pipes and fiddle; Kathryn Montoya on oboe, pennywhistle and recorders; and Carolyn Anderson Surrick, who plays the seven-stringed viola da gamba.

The group's repertoire includes Irish, Scottish, French and Spanish music. "Celtic Tunes, Ancient Tales," a new storytelling project for children and families, presents stories in words and music that draw on ancient Celtic legends, weaving the oral tradition with its accompanying music.

The performance is suitable for children ages 4 and older. Tickets for adults and children are $9 at the door.
