The North Shore Celtic Ensemble is bringing the heat to Squamish with a new concert series called Playing with Fire.
On Sunday, Nov. 19 at 1:30 p.m., the group will perform at the Eagle Eye Theatre with “fiery tunes and blazing fiddles,” according to a news release. The Ensemble is a collection of young musicians from Vancouver.
“What started as Celtic is now a spirited no-boundaries exploration of music that inspires us. The result is a full-spectrum music experience that defies labels and spans conventional genres,” reads the release.
“Their own original compositions draw on Celtic, classical, jazz and folk influences and are blended with creative arrangements of more traditional Celtic tunes.”
Tickets are available for about $20 on the group’s website, nsce.ca.
Under the direction of Gabriel Dubreuil, Serena Eades and Danielle Leonard, the group is described as “more than just a performing group.”
“The North Shore Celtic Ensemble is a meeting place for youth to explore and share music. Music is about connecting with people of all ages and cultures, and the Ensemble is committed to helping to build connections through exceptional community performances and creative collaborations with other artists and arts organizations.”
The Ensemble will also be bringing the same performance to North Vancouver at the Centennial Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 25 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for that show are $35 for adults and $25 for students and seniors.
