Geoffrey Castle's Celtic Christmas
A Port Angeles tradition, the Christmas season just wouldnt be the same without a visit from the Geoffrey Castle Celtic Christmas Celebration. Featuring powerful and moving guest performances by the Port Angeles High School Orchestra, Band and Choir, this is a truly unforgettable community event. As always this major production features the fiery fiddle of violin virtuoso Geoffrey Castle, energetic and beautiful Celtic dancing, guest singers and even a visit all the way from the North Pole by the chief elf himself Santa Claus.
Geoffrey Castle has been playing the violin since he was 8 years old. While attending Columbia University, he made his money as a street musician, busking around New York City. He rose to fame when offered the chance to perform with the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, M. Butterfly. When not performing locally and around the world, Castle volunteers his time encouraging school orchestras to keep on playing. A theme of Castles career has been to debunk pre-conceived notions of what is possible on a violin. He is the preeminent pioneer of the six-string electric violin.
Basically, this show is all about the magic of Christmas and a time that predates the commercialized Christmas of today, says Castle. Be ready to be transported back to the Misty Isles.
