North Stars Chamber Orchestra has performed many concerts in their home state of Washington, USA, and produced concert tours to China, (2x), Portugal, Prague, Vienna, and Finland.
The North Stars Chamber Orchestra is an elite group of classically trained instrumental musicians, ages 13-20, including an award- winning vocalist, Avah Siobhan Moles.
This summer’s trip to Ireland includes performances in, Limerick (June 21), Galway (June 23) and Dublin (June 27). We are delighted to present Siobhan Brady, Dublin youth harp soloist, in Saely Kelly, arranged by Janet Harbison.
North Stars’ repertoire includes selections by Grieg, Gershwin, Bernstein, Bach, with selected hymns and folk music. Concert admission is free and any donations go to PCMA, our sponsoring organization, a 501 C-3 non-profit.
We very much hope to see a large audience, to hear our American and Irish music!
