Winter Concert Series featuring Great Rivers Choral Society with Celtica

The Edwardsville Parks Department presents Great Rivers Choral Society as part of the popular Winter Concert Series. Get into the holiday spirit as this talent choir performs “A CELTIC CHRISTMAS” along with the band, Celtica.

A Celtic Christmas Concert will rekindle the flame in the hearth with music and song from the infinitely rich treasury of Ireland's cultural heritage. Imagine a wintry day in the Christmas season, where Irish and Scottish musicians regale locals and travelers alike with their playing. Caroling from the choir mixes with the instrumental riffs of the traditional musicians, and the warmth from their collaboration literally chases the cold winter away. This concert will bring together the worlds of classical and Celtic music.

Under the direction of Dr. Ronald Abraham, a retired music professor from SIUE and an Edwardsville resident for 25 years, Great Rivers Choral Society consists of nearly 50 voices coming together as a community, volunteer choral group that has been bringing quality music to the area since 2001.

Catered hors d’oeuvres provided by the Parks Department are included with purchase of ticket and will be served in the 2nd floor Marquee Room from 6:00pm-7:00pm while supplies last.
Special Offer: Buy tickets to all five shows and receive $5 off your total purchase.
