Midwest World fest “Lunch Listen”
Tuesdays: January 12, January 19 and February 2 at 12:00 pm • Free Admission
Since 2003, Arts Midwest World Fest has brought international musicians to communities throughout the Midwest. You may remember when The Arts Center hosted four world-renowned performance groups. Many of us have fond memories of the experience and impact these “visitors” had on our community.
This year, the artists cannot perform in person but Arts Midwest is offering the programs virtually, on-line, available to everyone to enjoy, not just the “host communities.” There are study guides, discussion questions, and videos that accompany each performance group, and of course, concert videos. This year showcases three international groups. You can watch on-line (https://www.artsmidwest.org/worldfestonline) or come to The Arts Center and watch with us on the following dates, bring your own lunch and enjoy a socially distanced but culturally rich experience.
Hikaru (Japan) – Tuesday, February 2, at 12:00 pm
Explore Japanese folk music through Hikaru’s magical melodies and rhythms. A group of well-trained musicians from different prefectures of Japan, each member of Hikaru is well versed in the deep traditions of their instruments and styles: the distinctive 3-string Tsugaru shamisen, powerful taiko drums, the traditional shinoboe flute, and Akita folk music. These traditional sounds and styles combine in a stunning performance that will carry you to the soaring mountains and rugged seas of Japan.
