About the event

CELTIC THRONE—THE ROYAL JOURNEY OF IRISH DANCE

From Golden Globe-nominated composer Brian Byrne (Heartbeat of Home) comes a majestic new musical score for a brand-new Irish dance production from Herbert W. Armstrong College and Armstrong Dance of Edmond, Okla.

Celtic Throne explores the ancient origins of Irish step dance and celebrates the millennia-long journey of a music-and-dance-loving people as they migrate from the ancient Near East to Ireland, Scotland, England and the United States.

“Celtic Throne combines Byrne’s powerful, cinematic musical score with hard- and soft-shoe Irish dancing, all set against epic imagery of Ireland, the Scottish Highlands, scenes from the British Empire, and traditional America. This show is a stonking celebration of the British Isles and the United States. It is guaranteed to leave audiences thrilled and inspired,” said codirector Brad Macdonald. “Bring the entire family for an unforgettable experience!”

Golden-Globe nominee Brian Byrne is a multi-award winning film and television composer, songwriter and producer. He has collaborated with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Katy Perry, Bono, Barbara Streisand, Josh Groban, Sinead O’Connor, Kelly Clarkson and Sarah McLachlan, to name a few.

The Armstrong Dance troupe is comprised of Irish dancers from around the world, including Britain, Australia, Canada and the United States, ranging in age from 22 to just four years old. The troupe is comprised of students from the Carey Academy in England and the Maguire Academy in America, some of whom have competed with great success in top Irish dance competitions, including Worlds, All Irelands, Great Britain and North American Nationals.
