Stratford Symphony Orchestra
142 Ontario Street
Guest Artist: Dan Stacey and The Black Swans, Cedric Smith
Our annual Celtic Concert features award-winning local fiddler Dan Stacey and his band The Black Swans. The spotlight will be on the music of the blind Irish composer and itinerant harpist, Turlough O’Carolan (1670-1738), regarded by many as Ireland’s national composer. His compositions, reflecting jigs, reels and folk song, were also influenced by great Italian composers like Vivaldi and Corelli. We will enjoy a return guest appearance by well-known singer and actor Cedric Smith.
