Program Notes

Known as the dean of American light music, Leroy Anderson created one of the most enduring and endearing works in the repertoire. Drawn from familiar Irish folk tunes, its six movements present a rich musical palette brimming with color and fresh invention. This medley of highlights from the suite draws from thematic material found in each of the movements.
