ASHLAND, Ky. — The Alltech Fortnight Festival is proud to present the Dublin Philharmonic Orchestra on Tuesday, February 24, at 7 p.m. at the Paramount Arts Center. After a recent Alltech Fortnight Festival January appearance in Lexington, Ireland’s leading symphony will make its second Kentucky appearance during their inaugural, 49 concert U.S. tour.

This tour is the groups first in the United States.
