Monday, December 5 at 8 p.m. Celtic Woman – Believe

(Rochester, NY) – Internationally renowned for alluring stage productions and songs of heartwarming inspiration, the singing sensation Celtic Woman presents a new chapter of musical enchantment to be enjoyed by the entire family. Celtic Woman – Believe airs Monday, December 5 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cablel 1011 and 11), and again Sunday, December 11 at 6 p.m. During the broadcast veiwers will learn more about WXXI's exclusive ticket offer to Celtic Woman's March 2012 concert at Landmark Theatre in Syracuse, New York.

Celtic Woman – Believe stars vocalists Chloë Agnew, Lisa Kelly, Lisa Lambe and Celtic violinist Máiréad Nesbitt, performing classic Irish songs (“The Water Is Wide,” “Green Grow the Rushes,” “A Woman’s Heart,” “The Parting Glass”), timeless pop anthems (“Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Tears in Heaven”), and inspirational songs (“You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “Smile,” “Ave Maria”) with their signature Celtic Woman twist, under the musical direction of Emmy-nominated music producer David Downes.

Celtic Woman’s previous smash-hit public television programs and companion live concert DVDs were filmed at historic locations around Ireland, including Slane Castleand Powerscourt House & Gardens. For the first time ever, this Celtic Woman concert was filmed in the United States, capturing the infectious energy of their loyal American fans. Directed by Emmy-nominated Ryan Polito, Celtic Woman – Believe is a free-flowing cinematic experience that makes viewers feel as if they are front and center, in the middle of the magic.

The extravagant production was filmed at Atlanta, Georgia’s Fox Theatre (former grand movie palace and now National Historic Landmark) with a dazzling array of visual and musical effects — including a 20-piece orchestra, seven-piece Celtic Woman Band, 16-piece Atlanta Bagpipe Band, lush vocal harmonies from the 10-member Aontas Choir and a 30-member children’s choir — serving as the backdrop to the grace and beauty of Celtic Woman.
