Entertainment briefs: Celtic Woman; free Downtown concerts
Celtic Woman to play Pittsburgh in December
Celtic Woman will be making a return for a Christmas show in December, but no dates have been announced for the spring show that has been mainstay here since 2005.
Tour publicist Renee Pfeffer says, however, not all dates have been arranged for the spring. But a look at group's schedule shows a rather jammed lineup.
The Christmas show will be Dec. 3 and 4 with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at Heinz Hall, Downtown. Tickets are $40 to $125 and go on sale at 9 a.m. July 9. Details: 412-392-4900 or www.trustarts.org.
