This show took Cleveland by storm last year! Sold out concerts, dancing in the aisles--the Apollo's Fire audiences loved it. Back by popular demand, the concert series will culminate with a concert at the Met Museum in NYC on Dec. 16. Amanda's daughters will join her on stage once again to sing with the youth chorus, The Musettes for Cleveland performances.

Christmas on Sugarloaf Mountain: An Irish-Appalachian Celebration
with Jeffrey Strauss,baritone
and Apollo’s Singers & Apollo’s Musettes
The program that premiered in 5 sold-out concerts last year returns in a lively new version. Fiddlers, singers, hammered dulcimer, bagpipes, and a whistle-playing dancer join with children’s voices to evoke the Celtic roots of an Appalachian Christmas. The people of the mountains welcome Christmas with LOVE, SINGING, DANCING and PRAYER.
