6 Weeks of World Music!

Janetta Coleman will give the final performance in our 6-week series of free multicultural family concerts at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, July 27 in Central Park Pavilion. Get ready to enjoy the lively rhythms and dances in the African tradition.

The Prabath Academy for Music and Performing Arts began the series on June 22, with classical Indian dancing.

Okasan and Me, on June 29, featured Japanese songs and traditions.

Our July 6 program starred the Fuego Nuevo Ballet Folklorico dancers, with Aztec and colonial Mexican dancing.

The audience joined Swift Cloud on July 13 in a celebration of Native American drums and dancing.

The fifth performance in our series was by The Firebird Youth Chinese Orchestra, featuring young musicians with their traditional Chinese musical instruments.
