The Vistas Season view for February 2019 comes from across the Atlantic. The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance has invited Eileen Ivers, a master of the Irish fiddle, to join the DPO for an evening of Celtic music and tradition.

A daughter of Irish immigrants who was raised in New York City, Eileen Ivers started playing fiddle at a young age, eventually winning the All-Ireland fiddle championships . . . nine times! She graduated magna cum laude from Iona College with a degree in mathematics. However, while pursuing post-graduate studies in mathematics, she delved further into diverse genres of music. Ivers has since established herself as a preeminent fiddler. The Grammy award–winner has performed for U.S. presidents and royalty, and the New York Times has called her “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin.” She has performed with more than 40 symphonic orchestras and at many renowned folk festivals. Ivers’ newest CD “showcases how Irish music and dance have integrated with various roots music of North America.”

Get out of the February cold and into the warm hearth of music that will envelop the Schuster in Celtic Spirit. Get your tickets now!
