Music from Ireland includes the folk song Down by the Salley Gardens and Solas Ane, (Yesterday’s Joy), a Gaelic tune in a setting by Samuel Hazo.

From south of the border, the Band will perform Alfred Reed’s El Camino Real, a Spanish march Amparito Roca, and Street Tango by popular Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla.

Rounding out the program are selections from a set of Israeli folk dances.
