“A Celtic Christmas” Still Going Strong

“A Celtic Christmas” Still Going Strong

For more than ten years, College of Charleston music professor Robert Taylor and his wife, Mary, have directed the very popular performance of A Celtic Christmas. Featuring the Charleston-based Taylor Festival Choir and the Na Fidleiri fiddling ensemble, A Celtic Christmas combines classic holiday songs with traditional Celtic music, opera and more.

A Celtic Christmas will begin at 7:30 p.m. on December 15, 2014, at the Circular Congregational Church at 150 Meeting Street in Charleston.

PURCHASE: Tickets range in price from $10 to $30 and can be purchased at the door or in advance here.

This year the performance will contain a segment celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the 1914 Christmas Eve Armistice, in which British and German troops paused trench warfare during World War I to sing carols and celebrate Christmas in peace. Also, this year’s A Celtic Christmas will guest star piper Cillian Vallely and guitarist/singer-songwriter John Doyle.
