Our fourth annual Irish culture summer program will run from July 20-26, 2014.
The Francis O’Neill Irish Arts Week provides a unique learning opportunity for kids and adults by bringing master traditional Irish musicians to Chicago and the magic of Ireland to students of all ages and the community.
The Francis O’Neill Irish Arts Week will bring traditional Irish music, singing, dancing, language and arts to children and adults. Students of all ages and abilities (as well as those who don’t play an instrument already!) will have the unparalleled opportunity to immerse themselves in several areas of Irish arts with world-class teachers.
The week includes an Opening Gala Concert, Kids Day Camp (ages 6-16, 9am-3pm, Mon-Fri) with a finale recital for family and friends and Adult Workshops in the evenings.
The faculty will teach a wide range of subjects including Traditional Irish Music, Sean-Nós Dancing, Irish Language (Comhrá Gaeilge), Irish and English Singing and Celtic Arts and Crafts.
Chicago has a long history with traditional Irish music and the events of Francis O’Neill Irish Arts Week serve to continue that rich heritage. The Francis O’Neill Irish Arts Week further serves to cement Chicago’s historic place as a bastion of Irish music. The week has something for all ages and pays fitting homage to former Chicago Police Chief, Captain Francis O’Neill, who preserved traditional Irish music for future generations. This week continues that legacy.
All events will take place in the Avondale neighborhood of Chicago centering at Chief O’Neill’s (3471 N. Elston).
