Weekend planner: Music

An informal 20-member ensemble, the CitySingers of Hartford offers a wide repertoire encompassing both a cappella and accompanied works of various styles, periods and cultures. Set for performance Saturday at the First Congregational Church in Amherst, their “Celtic Fire” program is an exploration of the Celtic tradition that traces its evolution from ancient chant through beautiful folk melodies to compositions by modern Celtic composers, and features instrumental accompaniment by Irish harp, wooden flute, fiddle, mandolin, concertina, bodhrán, double bass, pipe organ and highland pipes.

3 p.m. $12 general admission; $10 seniors and students. A reception follows. The First Congregational Church is at 165 Main St. in Amherst. 253-3456
