CATHIE RYAN, original lead singer for the group Cherish the Ladies, has created the definitive Irish/Celtic Orchestral Pops program. Most recently, she has taken her fabulous show to the Rochester Philharmonic, Vancouver Symphony, Dayton Philharmonic, Hartford Symphony and New Jersey Symphony.

Cathie Ryan’s Pops programs feature a blend of Irish traditional, contemporary and original songs mixed with rafter raising jigs, reels and rousing Irish step dancing.
