Performing in Our Community

The North Shore Celtic Ensemble performs at local festivals and events and also produces signature concerts for you to enjoy!

Each year, we also give back to our community through our Community Concert Series. This series of donated performances has special emphasis on inter-generational programming that builds and strengthens connections with community members of all walks of life. If your organization would like to take part, please contact us at .

    Thrive

    “There is a crack in everything.
    That’s how the light gets in.”
    ~ Leonard Cohen

    Our May 8 concert was going to bring us all together to commemorate the North Shore Celtic Ensemble’s past achievements and to celebrate what the future holds. The new circumstances call for new ways of sharing music, so we are moving our concert online.

    To watch the concert, go to either:
    Facebook
    YouTube

    Live streaming will begin at 7 pm, concert to begin at 7:30 pm.

    We are very excited to announce a series of tutorials with Gabriel Dubreuil - a new member of our team of Artistic Directors, as well as our first ever online concert - Thrive. The video tutorials will teach you new tunes and prepare you for our big concert on May 8 at 7:30 pm pst, so that you too will be able to join in from the comfort of your home. We will have Gabriel Dubreuil and one of our former Directors, Jay Knutson joining us for this big performance, so make sure you save the date!

    To access the tutorials, simply follow the YouTube link below:
