Ceol / Clubanna / Ceardlanna
Los Angeles has a wealth of traditional musicians and we hope to have some of these talented players join us to pass on the traditions to others who want to learn.
In the Fall we hope to have classes in Celtic harp, tin whistle, accordian, and many other instruments.
It is our strong desire that we will be able to find a place where many of the local musicians can come together, perhaps through an organization such as Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann.
We wish to include traditional players from all Gaelic fields and beyond.
Look out for information on these lessons and lessons in language and culture for children in the Fall. We also hope to work with the GAA. Ní neart go cur le chéile.
1. Film Club
From September, every Saturday in the Wilshire location at 5pm a film, program, or clips will be shown in one of the Gaelic languages. There is information on them, help in understanding the language, and an opportunity for discussion. It is a great way to explore the wealth of film that has been produced in Gaelic languages.
2. Book Club
At present there is one book club in Panorama City for advanced readers and one for intermediate readers in Culver City. At present all the books are in Irish but we hope to expand that to other Gaelic languages in the future. The books are fun and modern.
3. Conversation Circles
Conradh na Gaeilge encourages members to set up Conversation Circles so students can put their language skills to use in real life. Contact us to find one near you.
The Gaelic Choir led by Paula Kelley is in its infancy and is right now looking for people to audition to join.
Paula is an excellent teacher who will train people to bring out the best in the vocal skills.
The choir will have songs in all the Gaelic languages as well as some in English. There will be close harmonies and plenty of variety of styles.
Classes are held in a private home. Please contact us for details.
