The World Music Ensemble is made up of a combination instruments from different cultures throughout the world, including Western and non-Western instruments, and is open to both music majors and non-music majors. Students have the opportunity to explore and perform the music of different cultures and learn new instruments from different cultures, developing new music and reworking traditional music through a student-driven creative process. The classical music, folk music and popular music of various cultural traditions is explored. Students will have the opportunity, if desired, to compose for the group. The individual musical heritages of each student are drawn upon, resulting in new musical expressions that will demonstrate the potential of intercultural understanding and communication.

Tickets can be purchased at the door.
