BThe Bruce Porter Memorial Music Series welcomes CitySingers of Hartford as they return with their Celtic Fire! program on Sunday, March 1 at 4 p.m., at South Congregational Church, 242 Salmon Brook St.

Celebrating the timelessness of the Celtic soul with captivating melodies, choral arrangements, and entrancing poetry, the 2020 Celtic Fire! program will trace the evolution of Celtic music from its ancient roots in melodies from the Celtic regions of Galicia (northern Spain), Norway, and other parts of Europe to Irish fiddle tunes and music by celebrated composers such as Turlough O’Carolan, Sean O’Raida, and Michael McGlynn. Accomplished musicians on Irish harp, wooden flute, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, concertina, bodhrán, double bass, pipe organ and Highland pipes will support and enhance the singers.

Founded 34 years ago with patronage from Trinity College Chapel, CitySingers has expanded to a chamber choir of 25 singers who have presented programs every year in churches in the greater Hartford area.

Come a little early for a good seat.
