Danú

  • March 4, 2018 at 7:00 pm

Merchant Hall Family Friendly Event

A leading traditional Irish ensemble comes to the Hylton Center for this big pre-St. Patrick’s Day celebration of festive Celtic music. Praised by The Washington Post for their “vibrant mix of virtuosity, energy, and empathy,” Danú performs both ancient Irish music and new repertoire for a lively, flawless performance. Mason’s University Singers, a talented student ensemble from George Mason University’s School of Music, join them onstage for a one-of-a-kind experience. Hailing from Ireland’s old counties, this award-winning ensemble has thrilled audiences throughout Europe and North America with stops at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and Symphony Space in New York. The virtuoso players are renowned for their mastery of authentic Irish instruments—flute, tin whistle, fiddle, button accordion, and bouzouki—which is matched by gorgeous vocals in English and Gaelic. Bring the whole family to enjoy this entertaining evening of Celtic music!

Lecture: Echoes of the Great War

Veterans and the Arts Initiative

  • March 8, 2018 at 10:00 am

Gregory Family Theater

Lecture by Cheryl Regan, Exhibition Director at the Library of Congress

Presented by the Hylton Center Veterans and the Arts Initiative and Lifelong Learning Institute, Manassas 

"Echoes of the Great War: American Experiences of World War I examines the upheaval of world war as Americans confronted it— both at home and abroad. The exhibition considers the debates and struggles that surrounded U.S. engagement; explores U.S. military and home front mobilization and the immensity of industrialized warfare; and touches on the war’s effects, as an international peace settlement was negotiated, national borders were redrawn, and soldiers returned to reintegrate into American society." Free and open to the public.
