Greetings from the Center for Irish Music!
I wish you a blessed Samhain on this chilly November day. We are halfway through the 17-week Fall term and picking up speed as we head into our Fall Fund Drive, December performances (check them out on our blog) and early-stage preparations for Éigse CIM, A Gaela Event happening on Saturday, February 24th, 2018.
In the office, we are hard at work searching for a
Registration Coordinator and Administrative Associate. We'll be announcing a new employee soon!
On behalf of the CIM board, staff and MIM planning team, I would like to share the news that we have decided to postpone
the 11th Annual Minnesota Irish Music Weekend until June 2019
. We will not be offering the visiting artist event in June 2018.
The 10th Anniversary MIM weekend was incredibly successful and we think it's time for a little break as we take time to reflect on our successes and make strategic plans for the CIM. That being said,
MIM event co-chairs Jeanne Morales, Jo Ann Vano and their powerhouse team are already working on plans for the next Minnesota Irish Music Weekend booked for June 14-16, 2019, so mark your calendars!
We are planning to present a smaller visiting artist event in the style of "A Harvest Home" (for those of you who remember it) in October 2018. Stay tuned for more news about that, and for more traditional Irish music programs coming soon.
Join Mary Vanorny for our first
Young Learner's Session
on Saturday, November 18th from 10:00am-11:30am at the Center for Irish Music. Click
