The New World Chorale joins the Mercury Orchestra, conducted by Channing Yu, for a performance of Phaudrig Crohoore, a popular ballad by the Irish novelist J. Sheridan Le Fanu set to music by the Irish composer Sir Charles Villiers Stanford. The piece tells the tale of a bold, roughhewn Irishman with a heart of gold, against a backdrop of family feuding and romance.

The program also includes American composer Amy Beach’s masterful Symphony in E minor (“Gaelic”), which was premiered in Boston in 1896.

This concert is hosted by the Boston Landmarks Orchestra.
