Book Michael Londra through David Belenzon

MICHAEL LONDRA

Michael Londra presents an orchestral evening of Celtic classics, popular folk songs and his own compositions mixed with stories from his home and that unique Irish humor.


The famed tenor from Ireland presents a full orchestral program centered by a traditional Irish band, a full evening of Celtic songs, jigs n' reels. This show includes Irish and American classics like "How are Things in Glocca Morra" from Finians Rainbow, "Come to Me, Bend to Me" from Brigadoon, "The Water is Wide," "Shenandoah," "Fields Of Gold" and "You Raise Me Up" but also has more traditional pieces like "She Moved Through the Fair" and Michael's version of "Danny Boy," deemed the best recording of the song in history, by The Irish Emigrant, having been downloaded almost 7 million times on YouTube. The frenzied reels and toe tapping jigs played by Uilleann pipes, fiddles and whistles contrast with the sweeping orchestral sounds of the orchestra.
