"I would highly recommend Road to the Isles to any organization and would be happy to discuss our experiences with anyone interested."
Road to the Isles was the most popular program of our season. We had a house packed with people of all ages, many of whom have never attended a Fine Arts Discovery program. The response was outstanding. Everyone loved the program and wanted more... The dancing was spectacular and the music was outstanding. This was a wonderful opportunity for the community...a great show!
From virtuoso piping, fiddling, and flute playing, to championship quality dancing and songs that carry the taste of heather, Road to the Isles is a fabulous program. It was a soldout performance.
