A celebration of Irish music
St Patrick’s Day may have come and gone this year but Operatunity is bringing an incredible celebration of Irish music to the stage in their latest show.
When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, Operatunity’s daytime concert, will sparkle in Palmerston North on Wednesday, September 14, at 11am.
With infectious melodies, toetapping rhythms and beautiful lyrics, it’s little wonder these songs are loved by people from all walks of life. Whether by birth or family connection, many Kiwis can trace their heritage back to the emerald isle and the stirring music is the perfect way to treasure kinship with old Ireland.
Tunes from Ireland have a funny way of pulling at your heart strings. This personal connection adds a special feel that is uniquely warm and welcoming.
Naturally, the Irish are known for their humour, a trait that Operatunity will be sure to bring to the stage.
Operatunity says the songs of Ireland always have a good story behind them. From an amusing tale and candid love songs, to odes to the beautiful land and remembrance of harder times, every song paints a strong picture for the audience.
At times it can be hard to resist the opportunity to sing along, even if people are unfamiliar with the words.
The show hosts a number of talented performers including Marian Burns Serena Hendry, Paul CarnegieJones and singers John Cameron, Alex Milligan and Lynette Martin.
When Irish Eyes Are Smiling performs at Life Church, 590 Featherston Street, Palmerston North at 11am, Wednesday, September 14 at 11am. Bookings at email@example.com or call 0508 266 237.
