*New Date* A World of Music with Todd Green – Coolidge
February 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
A World of Music with Todd Green
On Monday, February 20, 2017 the Coolidge Performing Arts Center will host a free musical demonstration and lecture, “A World of Music with Todd Green” featuring 25 acoustic, indigenous string, flute and percussion instruments from the Middle East, Central Asia, Far East and South America. The presentation relates the instruments historically, geographically and culturally and shows how our own familiar western musical instruments were derived from these traditional ancient instruments through the ages. Mr. Green will also cover some of the religious and philosophical influences on Middle Eastern and Indian traditional music. After a brief intermission, the program will be followed by a discussion moderated by local scholar, Victoria Shaw, where audience participation will be encouraged. Todd Green’s artistic mission is to “help break down the barriers that divide us by experiencing other cultures through their music.”
