Celtic Meets Classical! combines the tunes you love with flute & violin playing like you’ve never heard (or seen) before! Juilliard graduates Shawn Wyckoff and Maria Millar have soloed at Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall. Their double-lives as Celtic musicians, however, have taken them down an entirely different path: Maria has toured as the dancing fiddler in Riverdance on Broadway and Riverdance: The Show, and Shawn has been spotted skiing, rollerblading and dancing across stages while playing Ireland’s most beloved jigs & reels. Celtic Meets Classical will feature Celtic music virtuosity featuring singalong favorites “Danny Boy” and “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling,” hyper-instrumental renditions of traditional tunes “Rocky Road to Dublin” and Riverdance‘s “Mason’s Apron,” audience-driven improvisation, and even some fiddle-inspired American instrumental classics
Maria and Shawn take your breath away as they transform the flute & violin into a Celtic symphony of sounds – you have to see it to believe it! Hear your favorites as though for the very first time; experience Celtic Meets Classical in the resounding space of Corpus Christi Cathedral.
