Delta Atlanta Symphony Hall LIVE announces the return of Irish singing group Celtic Woman on Saturday, December 17 in Atlanta Symphony Hall. The holiday program, called “A Christmas Symphony,” will feature the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

About Celtic Woman’s A Christmas Symphony
Their album, The Magic of Christmas celebrates the Irish holiday tradition of hospitality and the “hundred thousand welcomes.” The women of Celtic Woman will sing traditional Irish carols, like the ancient Gaelic carol Dia do Bheatha as well as new arrangements of old favorites like Silent Night, all with the lush music only a live symphony orchestra can generate. Sing along when they Deck the Halls, and be transported to a snowy wonderland with Sleigh Ride.
