FIDDLER EILEEN IVERS AND IMMIGRANT SOUL TO PERFORM AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY MARCH 1
LA CROSSE, Wis. – The Viterbo University NexStar Season will continue Thursday, March 1 at 7:30 p.m. as seven-time all-Ireland fiddle champion Eileen Ivers brings her incredible skill and musicianship to the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.
