"Women of Ireland," a full-scale production featuring traditional Irish music and dance, will be staged at 8 p.m. March 7, State Theatre for the Arts, 453 Northampton St., Easton by a mostly female group of performers. Each of the female singers, dancers and musicians featured in the show is a native of Ireland and trained in classic Irish song and dance.

With the "A Tribute to Pavarotti" concert, 5 p.m. March 9, State Theatre for The Arts, 453 Northampton St., Easton, the Teatro Lirico D'Europa production company pays homage to the music and voice of Luciano Pavarotti, the world-renowned Italian opera tenor.
Georgio Lalov, artistic director of "A Tribute to Pavarotti," believes that Pavarotti was "the most popular tenor ever.
"He had a wonderful vocal instrument," says Lalov, who himself is a trained opera singer, during a recent phone interview.

"Kevin Broad: New Works," through March 9, Crayola Gallery, Banana Factory, 25 W. Third St., Bethlehem, makes an artistic statement for the Nazareth native and Philadelphia-based abstract artist.
Broad is known throughout the East Coast arts community and beyond for his use of color and sweeping brush strokes. Drawn to abstract painting in an effort to make his work less about "things," he resolved to focus more on color.
"My art reflects my Chinese blood with my Costa Rican spirit," Isidro Con Wong says through his interpreter and fellow painter, Rigo Peralta, owner of Rigo Art, 1131 Linden St., Allentown, at the opening of the exhibition, "The Artwork of Isidro Con Wong," through March 14, The David E. Rodale Gallery, The Baum School of Art, 510 Linden St., Allentown.
Peralta has been Wong's champion in the Lehigh Valley and was instrumental in putting his work in front of Baum School of Art gallery director Rudy Ackerman, who immediately connected with Wong's vision.
