The Victoria Bach Festival will host a different kind of musical event Friday at the Spring Creek Event Center.
To celebrate St. Patrick's Day, the popular classical music nonprofit group will host an evening of dinner, a performance by the Blaggards and a chance to win some green at the St. Patrick's Eve-Eve Party.
The newest member of the group, fiddle player Bonnie Riley, is a Victoria native who kicked off touring with the Houston-based group in Swords, North Dublin, Ireland, according to the band's website. The four-piece Irish rock band will perform their interpretations of traditional tunes including "Irish Rover," "Whiskey In The Jar" and "Rocky Road To Dublin," according to a news release.
Friday's St. Patrick's Eve-Eve Party will benefit the Bach Festival's music and education programs. Tickets are $75 each and include dinner, live entertainment and an open bar.
In addition to the entertainment, there will be live and silent auctions, and one person will go home with an emerald-and-diamond bracelet from Green Bros. Jewelers.
