The Parnell Irish Band will entertain with guitar, drums and fiddle, providing lots of Irish music with vocals to engage the crowd in group singing. Irish jokes and stories will add to the fun as well as a unique opportunity to kick up your heels and learn the art of Irish Country Dancing.    Guests are encouraged to wear green and experience a pub-style setting while enjoying beer, wine and a light pub supper. The festivities will include a Silent Auction of unique items to support Voices Chorale NJ. Weather permitting, guests will be invited to gather outside on the patio for an Irish singalong by the firepit.

Tickets for this festive event and benefit are $65 per person. Space is limited. To reserve your seat, visit https://www.drgreenway.org; or https://www.voiceschoralenj.org or call 609-924-4646.

“It’s easy to be green at this special event! D&R Greenway’s protection of over 22,000 acres of land keeps 40 shades of green in our Garden State. I can’t think of anything more fitting than to celebrate that bounty with an Irish festival of singing and camaraderie!” says D&R Greenway President & CEO, Linda Mead. Only 75 seats are available. By the “luck ‘o the Irish” be among the first come, first served and reserve your party’s seats now.

Imagine yourself regaled by music and laughter throughout the evening, capped by a procession to a bluestone terrace where a firepit will light the night as you join in lyrical celebration. According to past participants, this will be a magical moment to remember.

Voices Board of Directors President and choir member Jane Read says “Voices is excited to continue our partnership with D&R Greenway with this event. We look forward to sharing our music and enjoying the evening with friends old and new.”
