We are currently producing a wonderful new concert program for broadcast on PBS in partnership with The Irish Fellowship Club of Chicago. The concert will feature acclaimed Irish Tenor, Paddy Homan together with The City Lights Orchestra and will be filmed live at the historic Old Saint Patrick's Church in Chicago. The concert was conceived and created by Paddy Homan and is titled: I AM IRELAND.
 
This concert follows the history of Ireland from 1798 - 1916 in story and in song.  But this is not just the story of Ireland.  This is the story of all freedom-loving people who appreciate the struggle it has taken to gain independence. Senator Billy Lawless is one of the concert co-chairs and is the first Senator for the Irish Diaspora representing the Irish overseas and living in Chicago:
 
"I'm delighted to highlight the I AM IRELAND concert and lend my support to a unique opportunity to tell the story of Ireland's road to Independence from 1798 to 1916. This once in a lifetime production plans to debut for the first time in Chicago at the historic Old St. Pat's Church. During Ireland's turbulent past the Irish Fellowship Club of Chicago welcomed a host of Irish leaders to America, as they sought support for Ireland's cause. No country did more for the cause of Irish freedom than America and it is only fitting that Chicago will be the setting for this wonderful show." - SENATOR BILLY LAWLESS
