World Music Ensembles



Come together with others to celebrate music from other cultures.

No matter what style of music you have studied or are trained in, you can always expand your musical horizons by immersing yourself in the music of another country, culture or historical period. The school provides a musical travelogue in our World Music Ensemble offerings. Check out this recent performance of our Afrobeat Ensemble.
