Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on January 1, 2008

The Music of India | The Music of Turkey

The Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall, which creates broad-reaching music education programs, is playing a central role in Carnegie Hall’s commitment to making great music accessible to as many people as possible through creative musical interaction and inspiring lifelong learning-Music for Everyone.

Citi Global Encounters 2008-09 integrates the study of world music into social studies, English, and music classrooms. Throughout the spring semester, students and teachers explore the music and culture of the chosen focus country through sequential lessons, Professional Development Workshops, classroom visits by a world music performer, and a final interactive concert in Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall.

The 2008-09 program offers the opportunity to choose between a program focused on the Music of India and a program focused on the Music of Turkey.

GO DEEPER: Connect your classroom with participants around the world via an online community and two videoconferenced concerts in the yearlong Cultural Exchange Program.
