The concerts will include a mixture of traditional choral music, reading of poetry and prose by CGOA Stages members, and lively musical performances by local Irish band Barley Draught.

The concerts are at the Wy’east Middle School performing arts center. There is a donation of $10 for adults, $5 students and advance tickets are available through the CGOA website, gorgeorchestra.org.
