A CELTIC CHRISTMAS

December 14 - December 15

| $15 – $80

When Cherish the Ladies first appeared with our orchestra, the experience was not only exquisite but also unexpected. We knew these women could make great music — but we didn’t realize they could be so hilarious. Joanie Madden should patent her wacky sense of humor. She’s a national treasure. I’m sure Ireland and America are fighting over her. I can’t wait to see what she and the group bring to their Christmas concert with us!” – Scott Speck, Music Director

The Mobile Symphony is joined by the popular Irish group Cherish the Ladies for a Celtic Christmas celebration! Mobile audiences loved them when they celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with the orchestra several years ago. These high-energy women are back with a new Christmas show packed with great music, Irish dancers, holiday fun and a few surprises. “It is simply impossible to imagine an audience that wouldn’t enjoy what they do,” says The Boston Globe of this Grammy Award-nominated Irish-American supergroup. Cherish The Ladies has thrilled audiences worldwide with timeless Irish traditions and good cheer.
