Michael's show includes Irish and American classics like How are Things in Glocca Morra from Finians Rainbow, Come to Me, Bend to Me from Brigadoon, The Water is Wide, Shenandoah, Fields Of Gold and You Raise Me Up but also has more traditional pieces like She Moved Through the Fair and Michael's version of Danny Boy, deemed the best recording of the song in history, by The Irish Emigrant, having been downloaded almost 7 million times on Youtube. The frenzied reels and toe tapping jigs played by Uilleann pipes, fiddles and whistles contrast with the sweeping orchestral sounds of the orchestra.
Michael Londra, one of the world's most sought after Irish tenors, originally came to the US. to perform as lead singer of Riverdance on Broadway and is currently performing as a solo artist.

“Michael Londra is a consummate artist and a brilliant collaborator. He matches uncompromising artistry with a kindness and generosity that prove truly delightful for audience and orchestra alike. His 2017 concert with Central Iowa Symphony was a triumph on all counts, and requests for an encore appearance are already pouring in.” Eric McEntyre, Central Iowa Symphony
