Popular Irish recording artist Celtic Woman brings its holiday show, The Best of Christmas, to Mayo Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, Nov. 28 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $59-$129.

New Jersey Festival Orchestra will provide orchestral accompaniment.

The multi-platinum international music sensation's annual holiday offers an unparalleled live musical experience, with Celtic Woman performing timeless holiday songs accompanied by a full symphony orchestra. The show will feature music from the all-female ensemble's much loved holiday releases, such as the platinum-selling A Christmas Celebration and Home For Christmas. Celtic Woman promises an enchanting and festive evening filled with such favorites as "Silent Night," "I'll Be Home for Christmas," and "Joy To The World."

Both an accomplished recording ensemble and a world-class performing collective, Celtic Woman celebrates Ireland's rich musical and cultural heritage, while continuing its remarkable 13-year-legacy of introducing some of Ireland's most talented singers and musicians onto the world stage. The group's albums and DVD releases have been consistent multi-platinum best-sellers, while their Emmy-nominated public television specials including two acclaimed Christmas specials, Home For Christmas and A Christmas Celebration have regularly dominated the audience-supported viewer pledge drives.

Celtic Woman is comprised of four young Irish women- Mairéad Carlin, Éabha McMahon, gifted violinist Tara McNeill and the group's newest member Megan Walsh -whose performing skills bring centuries of musical and cultural tradition to life. In concert, their angelic voices and instrumental virtuosity are accompanied by a robust ensemble that includes Irish dancers, bagpipers and a full band playing an array of traditional Celtic instruments, including bodhran, tin whistle, bouzouki and Uilleann pipes.

Celtic Woman has sold over ten million CDs and DVDs, making it the only all-female act to achieve multi-platinum success in the classical crossover and world music genres during the past decade. Named Billboard's #1 World Music Artist of the Year six times, each of its 11 studio CDs have debuted at #1 on Billboard's World Album chart. Celtic Woman has also scored two Top 10 debuts on Billboard's influential album chart and five Top Five DVDs on Billboard's Top Video chart, as well as achieving platinum-level sales in nine countries.
