General Guinness Band Coming to Highland
Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach (ORMACO) kicks off the 2017-18 World Tour of Music series with the Columbus-based Irish group, The General Guinness Band, at 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 28 at Highland High School, 4150 Ridge Road, Medina. This acclaimed group has performed the music of Ireland for over 35 years in hundreds of concerts, programs, festivals, television and radio programs, including shows at Dollywood’s Valley Theater and performing with the Chieftains. Combining songs collected by vocalist and Kilkenny, Ireland native James O’Shea with energetic fiddle tunes, four part harmonies, and Irish step dancing, the band’s richly told stories-in-song also incorporate humor and provide insight into the charming lore and myth of the Irish. As part of the festivities, Sully’s Irish Pub in Medina will be offering a three course pre-concert Irish dinner for $15 per person (Reuben dip, Irish stew and cheesecake). Dinner reservations are required at 330-764-3333 and mention the concert to receive this special deal. Concert tickets are $10 in advance and are available at all Medina County Buehler’s stores, by calling 330-722-2541 or online at ormaco.org (credit card processing fee applies). Tickets at the door are $12, cash or check only.

  • Parents who are dropping off their children (Middle School students and older, please), are to use either the North or the South Lot to drop off / pick up their children. No drop-off / pick up will be permitted in the upper lot of the High School.
  • Carpooling is recommended
  • Shuttle buses will transfer fans to the stadium before/after the game. 

Tailgating is permitted; however, no alcohol, tobacco (including vaporizers) or weapons are allowed on school property. Violators will be handled by law enforcement. Tailgating must be done around the vehicle so no extra spots are taken up. Gas grills only. Open flames are not permitted. Please place all trash in receptacles.

All fans must have a ticket or purchased pass to enter the stadium. Re-entry is not permitted. High school and middle school students are encouraged to sit in the student section of the bleachers; elementary students must sit with an adult in the stands.
