The Irish Music School of Chicago proudly announces its fourth annual Francis O'Neill Irish Arts Week Kids Day Camp from July 21-26, 2014. The week provides a unique learning opportunity by bringing master traditional Irish musicians to Chicago to teach the many facets of traditional Irish arts to children ages 6-14. The Kids Day Camp teaches a wide range of subjects including traditional Irish music, singing, dancing, language and Celtic arts and crafts to children with no experience necessary. The camp takes place at Chief O'Neill's at 3471 N. Elston Ave. in Chicago Monday, July 21 through Friday, July 25, 9am-3pm with a finale recital for friends and family on Saturday, July 26. Buffet lunch including many traditional Irish dishes is provided Monday-Friday for the campers and is included in the cost of camp ($300 early registration through May 15, $350 late registration begins May 16).
Chicago has a long history with traditional Irish music and the events of Francis O’Neill Irish Arts Week serve to continue that rich heritage. The Francis O’Neill Irish Arts Week further serves to cement Chicago’s historic place as a bastion of Irish music. The week pays fitting homage to former Chicago Police Chief, Captain Francis O’Neill, who preserved traditional Irish music for future generations. The week continues that legacy by passing the beauty of traditional Irish arts to the next generation during the Kids Day Camp and also offers evening and weekend programming for adults.
The faculty for the 2014 Francis O'Neill Irish Arts Week includes some of the best traditional Irish music and dance teachers in the world including members of one of Ireland's leading traditional bands, Téada.
