St Patrick's Day may have already passed this year, but Operatunity is bringing a fantastic celebration of Irish music to the stage in their latest show next month.

With infectious melodies, toe-tapping rhythms and beautiful lyrics, it's little wonder these songs are beloved by people from all walks of life.

Whether by birth or by fellowship, many Kiwis can trace their heritage back to this mysterious land and the stirring music is the perfect way to treasure our kinship with the Emerald Isles.

The Operatunity Daytime Concert, called When Irish eyes are smiling, hosts a number of talented performers, including entertaining fiddler Marian Burns, light-footed Irish dancer Serena Hendry, accomplished pianist Paul Carnegie-Jones and singers John Cameron, Alex Milligan and Lynette Martin.

The concert will be on Tuesday September 6 at 11am at the Rotorua Baptist Church on Malfroy Rd.
