It’s easy to walk into Lincoln Center and hear the world’s finest classical or jazz musicians perform. But what about the rest of New York? What kinds of music and dances also matter in the City of Immigrants? What might you hear walking down a street or entering a living room in Queens or the Bronx? Well, you might hear the musical historians of West Africa who educate, entertain, and make peace through music in their community in Fordham Heights. Or, you might have the luck of attending a lecture by Sachiyo Ito, one of the US’s leading Japanese classical dance artists, in Manhattan. In New York, seemingly every corner and home not only looks, but also sounds different. Join us for an exclusive opportunity to learn more about the sounds of immigrant New York with Andrew Colwell, PhD, project director at the Center for Traditional Music and Dance. Colwell will share samples of CTMD performances and answer any questions you have about the program!
