St.Patrick’s Day Open Air Celebrations 2016

IXth Edition

St. Patrick’s Concert
Saturday, March 19th - 5PM-8PM
The Historical Centre of Bucharest (Lipscani, behind the National Bank)

************

This year’s St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations will put once again Bucharest on the world map of the “festivals in green” from Dublin to Buenos Aires and from Tokyo to Auckland.
All are welcome to raise a pint in honour of St. Patrick on Thursday, March 17th in all the important Irish pubs of Bucharest where live music will be played.
This week-end the main festivities will be carried out on the streets with an open-air concert taking place on Saturday and one of the biggest parades on mainland Europe scheduled for Sunday afternoon 3PM on Calea Victoriei.

CONCERT - Saturday 19th March 5-8pm, historical centre (Lipscani area)

The show will kick off with the Bordo Sarkany pipers from Hungary who will play a set of Irish and Scottish tunes. Following this the SteySha school of Irish dance will have her students on stage with a demonstration of their skills. Coming from the west coast of Ireland, The Donegal Pipe Band will rock the old town with their pipes and drums. Just a day before heading to Scotland for the Irish Dance World Championships, Stefan Orheanu, one of Romania’s best Irish dancers will have a special appearance on the stage. For the first time on a stage in Bucharest a Celtic harp will be played by Ileana Rotaru, local harper. To end the show an Irish-Romanian performance will be presented by the Irish Way dancers and Live band. Their special set will combine Irish tunes and well known traditional Romanian music in one special cultural experience.

JOIN THE CRAIC! Wearing something green is always a good idea!

For more “craic” and fun, there will be various contests, with prizes provided by the sponsors.

St. Patrick’s Day - Ziua Irlandei

Open Air Celebrations 2016
Ediţia a IX-a

Sambata, 19 martie, ora 17:00
Bucuresti - Centrul Istoric (Lipscani)

Serbarile cu ocazia St. Patrick’s Day - Ziua Nationala a Irlandei vor pune si anul acesta Bucurestiul pe harta mondiala a celor mai verzi festivitati, ce se desfasoara din Dublin pana in Buenos Aires si din Tokyo pana in Auckland.

Cei dornici sa ciocneasca un pint de bere neagra sau verde sunt asteptati inca de joi 17 martie, chiar de St. Patrick, in cele mai importante Irish Pub-uri din Bucuresti, unde vor avea loc concerte de muzica traditionala irlandeza. Pentru cei care iau weekendul in serios abia de vineri, concertele vor continua pana duminica seara, in majoritatea puburilor. Mai mult, sambata si duminica serbarile se vor desfasura si pe strazile orasului cu un spectacol in aer liber sambata pe strada Lipscani si o parada cu cimpoaie si care alegorice duminica pe Calea Victoriei..        

St. Patrick’s Day Open Air Celebrations, ajuns la cea de a IX-a editie, va avea loc in aer liber, ca in fiecare an, in Centrul Vechi, pe strada Lipscani (langa BNR), pe 19 martie, de la ora 17. Grupuri de dansatori si muzicieni vor intretine atmosfera pana la lasarea serii, in timp ce publicul va putea participa la diferite concursuri cu premii. Spectacolul va fi deschis de cimpoierii Bordo Sarkany (Ungaria) cu un set de melodii irlandeze si scotiene, fiind urmati de catre dansatorii scolii de dans irlandez SteySha din Bucuresti. In jurul orei 18, va incinge atmosfera un grup de cimpoieri si tobosari sosit din indepartatul oras Donegal din nord-vestul Irlandei. Dupa cimpoieri, Stefan Orheanu, recunoscut ca si unul dintre cei mai buni dansatori Irish din Romania va sustine un moment solo. Mentionam ca imediat a doua zi dupa acest spectacol Stefan va pleca in Scotia pentru a reprezenta Romania la Campionatul Mondial de Dans Irlandez. In premiera pe scena serbarilor din Bucuresti veti putea vedea si auzi o harpa irlandeza autentica, in interpretarea Ilenei Rotaru, harpista din Bucuresti. Spectacolul de anul acesta se va incheia cu un show inedit de muzica si dansuri romano-iralndeze in interpretarea dansatoarelor de la Irish Way acompaniati live. Toate dansurile din acest set combina melodii traditionale romanesti si irlandeze, intr-un mesaj cultural de prietenie dosebita.

Asadar, va invitam sa fiti irlandezi pentru o saptamana si sa va alaturati celui mai verde spectacol, dedicat zilei Irlandei!
