 2019 WORLD MUSIC SERIES RECAP VIDEOS

Each artist in the 2020 World Music Series will be in the area for two-day mini-residencies; performing two free concert previews leading up to a full-length capstone performance. The purpose of this program is to foster among community members an appreciation for music, develop future audience, patrons and contributors for the arts and introduce the community to a variety of musical instruments and genres. Each of the artists to be engaged will be meritorious World Music artists of national or international importance.

Southeast Minnesota has been and will continue to be enriched and challenged by alternative views of the world. Cultural literacy is essential to becoming a well-rounded individual because it points the way to understanding, cooperation, collaboration and problem solving. This vision of this project will enable the department to contribute to a fuller understanding of diverse cultural points of view. Rochester Music Department can help citizens gain insight into how they define their broader community and themselves.

Audiences will be exposed to the creative process, encouraging the exploration of the performing arts as a mode of communication, including one that is essential to what it means to be human: to express emotion and feelings. Outreach Service participants will engage artists through “question and answer” sessions to develop knowledge and understanding of World Music, unfamiliar scales and modes, exotic musical instruments, and the musical training of other cultures as well as the “oral tradition” common among World Music performers.
