THE ORIGINAL RIVERDANCE CHOIR

ANÚNA, THE ORIGINAL RIVERDANCE CHOIR, MAKES U.S. SOLO DEBUT IN HOLIDAY CONCERT ST. BARTHOLOMEW’S CHURCH, MONDAY, DECEMBER 16 AT 7:30 P.M.

A Concert Celebration of Sacred Music and Celtic Favorites Features Highlights from Anúna’s New CD, Winter Songs Special Performances by The Anúna Dancers

Since their departure from the popular Irish dance spectacular Riverdance – The Show in 1996, the internationally-renowned Celtic choir Anúna has dazzled audiences in eleven European countries and around the world. In December 2002, Ireland’s most famous and original choir makes their U.S. solo debut with a holiday concert celebrating the release of their latest CD, Winter Songs.

The concert, produced with the support of The Irish Arts Center and Irish America Magazine and featuring special performances by The Anúna Dancers, will take place at St. Bartholomew’s Church, located on Park Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets in Manhattan, on Monday, December 16 at 7:30 p.m. A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the Irish Arts Center as part of its 30th anniversary celebration.

Best known as the original Riverdance choir, Anúna was founded in 1987 by Dublin composer Michael McGlynn in order to explore and redefine the music of the ancient Celts. Michael’s twin brother, John McGlynn, created the artistic, atmospheric staging that has become the trademark of the unique choral group, whose enchanting musical style blends rich Celtic traditions with classical and new age sounds. During their illustrious career, Anúna has performed and recorded throughout the world with artists as diverse as Elvis Costello, Sting, Michael Crawford, the Chieftains, Barry Manilow, Jeff Buckley, Secret Garden, Sinéad O’Connor, and Andrea Corr.
