Ethnomusicology Student Association Concert
Saturday, May 16, 2009
The University of Washington Ethnomusicology Student Association of the School of Music presents its annual concert of music from around the world. The concert showcases the musical talents of students in the Ethnomusicology program. Many of the performers will be playing music as the result of their individual research and lessons with the University of Washington Ethnomusicology Division’s Artists in Residence. Since the mid-1960s the University of Washington Ethnomusicology Division has invited two master musicians each year to join the faculty as artists in residence. These artists provide an opportunity for students to gain firsthand musical experience in individual lessons and ensembles. In addition, international students in the Ethnomusicology Program who are expert musicians are also often invited to provide instruction in their instrumental or vocal tradition.
