Kitty Hoynes Session Players Join Le Moyne Chamber Orchestra for An Irish Celebration!

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … On Thursday, March 1, at 7:30 p.m., Le Moyne College will host the Kitty Hoynes Session Players for “An Irish Celebration.” Held at the college’s W. Carroll Coyne Center for the Performing Arts, the concert will feature the session players (often heard at their namesake pub in downtown Syracuse) alongside the Le Moyne College Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Travis Newton.

Featuring authentic Irish instruments, including concertina, harp, whistle, bodhrán and uilleann pipes, the concert will also highlight the various instruments of the chamber orchestra. The orchestra will also accompany the session players, performing an original work arranged and orchestrated by music faculty member Edward Ruchalski.

“This is a fantastic way to kick off St. Patrick’s Day celebrations here in central New York,” says Newton, also director of the College’s music program. “We’re thrilled to have such talented, authentic musicians joining us for this concert. Our students have benefited greatly from exposure to instruments they’ve never heard before.”

For tickets and further information, please call (315) 445-4523.
