RSCDS Annual Grand BallTime: 6:00 pm
Join the Royal Country Dance Society and Thistledown Band as we present the annual Grand Ball at the Celtic Junction April 12th. Although the Scottish country dancing is recommended ONLY for experienced dancers who know the dances, the event is open to all. There are two rates: for dancers ($35.00) and for non-dancers ($25.00) who would like to share a meal (heavy appetizers, desserts and drinks) and then listen to the lively music and share in the socializing during the evening. Food and fun begin at 6 p.m; the grand march kicks off at 7:30 p.m. The evening is always a great excuse to get dressed up and enjoy a festive time with friends old and new! And the music will be fabulous (says the pianist Sherry, if I do say so myself). For details, check out the website below.RSCDS Annual Grand Ball»

The Lilacs Suite for New Horizons String OrchestraTime: 7:00 pm
Come out and hear Sherry's new piece for hammered dulcimer and MacPhail's New Horizons Orchestra, The Lilacs Suite! May 7th at 7 p.m.; free. Judith Eisner commissioned this piece for her adult string orchestra, with a starring role for Stu Janis on hammered dulcimer. The Lilacs Suite, in three movements, has a decidedly New England-style vibe: a contradance reel, a waltz, and an Irish-style jig. The orchestra is great fun and so is the piece, so come on down!The Lilacs Suite for New Horizons String Orchestra»
