Course Description

Humor, love, kindness, and joy are universal. Community music-making builds a bridge where we are offered a glimpse into another culture and are delighted to find ourselves looking back. A country’s musical culture can also offer insight into its history, spirit, values, and heart. We can appreciate and begin to know a little about a people when we move in their footsteps, sing their songs, and play their games. These delightful gifts, traversing not only cultures, but generations, can lead to greater awareness and global understanding. This lively workshop will explore twenty cultures through their folk dance, rounds, passing games, play parties, clapping games, and literature. This course is applicable to all grade levels. Join us as we meet wonderful people through the gift of their music.
