Intercultural Music provides engaging and interactive performances for all ages demonstrating music and instruments from various cultures. Performances can be offered as classroom presentations or auditorium assemblies.
Assemblies are an effective way of introducing large groups of students to art from different cultures. By offering themed performances, we can help build on existing school events such as “Cultures Week” or “International Days.” We can also work with you to create a presentation that fits your current curriculum.
