The Blinn Performing Arts season will conclude Tuesday, March 17, 2020, with the musicians who first launched the Performing Arts Series on Oct. 21, 2015. The Young Irelanders will return to the O’Donnell Center to showcase the finest young talent Ireland has to offer.
Each year, the Irish Cultural Academy brings together Irish traditional music, song, and dance as part of one sensational group known as The Young Irelanders. Each performer – still in their 20s – is an Irish national champion in their discipline. Members of the Irish Cultural Academy have performed across six continents and for many heads of state, presidents of Ireland, U.S. presidents, and royalty, including Prince Albert of Monaco. Members also have performed in noted international venues such as the Beijing Opera House, Sydney Opera House, Kremlin State Palace in Moscow, the U.S. Capitol Building, The Kennedy Center, and the Lincoln Center.
