“What Christmas should be about-celebration, craic, good music and song, the closeness of friends and family, and the thought spared for our sisters and brothers on the margins of life.” – Bill Whelan, Grammy Award-winning composer of Riverdance
Enjoy An Irish Christmas at Symphony Space this year for a special benefit of the critically-acclaimed holiday concert that has become a uniquely New York Christmas show for the entire family-now in its seventh year. Mick Moloney leads a cast of America’s top Irish and world musicians through a truly unique journey of music, dance and storytelling where one and all are welcome. Each year, sold-out audiences have reveled in the warm glow of this intimate event that features songs like “The January Man,” “Christmas in the Trenches,” and the perennial sing along favorite “Miss Fogarty’s Christmas Cake.” Past visitors have included Gabriel Byrne, Dan Barry, Colum McCann, Michael Patrick MacDonald, Belinda McKeon, Malachy McCourt, Sebastian Junger and Christine Quinn.
