Award-winning singer Camille O’Sullivan wishes us all a very merry Christmas all the way from the Irish Arts Center in New York. Camille’s show “Where Are We Now?” opened the new Irish Arts Center building this month, after the completion of the Center’s new building in Manhattan.
Backed by a world class ensemble of musicians, including longtime collaborator Feargal Murray on piano, Camille’s rhapsodic interpretations of an eclectic assembly of songs from iconic songwriters, including David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Radiohead and the Pogues, asks—as we turn the page on a new chapter—Where Are We Now?
Irish Arts Center, founded in 1972 and based in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City, is a home for artists and audiences of all backgrounds who share a passion or appreciation for the evolving arts and culture of contemporary Ireland and Irish America.
We present, develop, and celebrate work from established and emerging artists and cultural practitioners, providing audiences with emotionally and intellectually engaging experiences in an environment of Irish hospitality. Steeped in grassroots traditions, we also provide community education programs and access to the arts for people of all ages and ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic backgrounds. In a historic partnership of the people of Ireland and New York, Irish Arts Center recently completed construction on a fully-funded $60MM state-of-the-art new facility to support this mission for the 21st century.
