TSO’s “Celtic Fantasies” Saturday night

The Timmins Symphony Orchestra is offering to warm you up in the middle of a cold winter with its concert this Saturday night at St. Anthony’s Cathedral.  It’s called “Celtic Fantasies”. Director Josh Wood says it features guest violin soloist Mary Beth Brown.

And there’s something peculiar about the event.

“None of the composers are either Scottish or Irish.” Wood says it’s their conception of Scotland and Ireland, and includes some classics.

“We have the Irish Suite from Leroy Anderson. That’s got things like ‘The Minstrel Boy’ and ‘The Irish Washer Woman,” he outlines. “Some toe tappers there.” And, of couse, “Danny Boy”.

“The guest soloist – really she’s an amazing player, teacher, violinist — Mary Beth Brown. She is actually doing a master class on the Thursday evening before the concert, February 9th,” says Wood. “That one’s at St. Matthew’s, which is just down the street from St. Anthony’s.”

You can watch the master class free of charge, but Wood hopes you make a donation to the orchestra.

Saturday’s concert is at 8:00pm. Tickets are available for $40.00 at the Timmins Museum.
