Escape to Ireland with the music star of Riverdance and nine-time All-Ireland Fiddle Champion, Eileen Ivers. Described by The New York Times as “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin,” Eileen Ivers and your PSO will take you on an unforgettable journey through Celtic music and tradition.

Due to the rise of the highly contagious and virulent Delta variant, your PSO will be requiring all audience members, staff, and volunteers attending PSO concerts provide proof of vaccination or negative COVID test prior to entry, as well as wear masks at all times while at Merrill Auditorium, unless otherwise exempt due to a disability, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (42 U.S.C. 12101 et seq.).

Unless otherwise directed by city, state, or federal health officials, these policies will be in effect until at least November 9, 2021, when we will reassess our safety protocols. Any changes to the current measures will be announced on or around that time.

For more information about our safety protocols please visit our FAQ page here: https://portlandsymphony.org/covid-19/


THIS CONCERT WILL BE AVAILABLE IN-PERSON AND ONLINE!

This concert runs approximately 60 minutes. There will be no intermission and no concessions served.

Please note, this performance will be filmed for digital release on PSO TV.

In order to ensure the health and safety of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, dates, programs, and offerings may be subject to change.
