The SDSU School of Music and Dance presents the SDSU World Music Concert Series, music and dance performances by professional ensembles to celebrate, highlight, and represent cultures and countries from around the world. The series will be repeated in the Spring semester.

The World Music Series is presented in conjunction with the Music Cultures of the World class taught by Laurel Grinnell-Wilson. Detailing the variety of performances to see this semester, Grinnell-Wilson said “they range from solo instrumental performances to 20-person groups that feature music and dance, most of them with unique non-Western instrumentation and captivating costumes. These performances are a unique opportunity for the students to absorb an authentic musical experience that aligns closely with our coursework.”

All World Music Series events are open to the public. Tickets are available online for $10 (students) $15 (standard) and must be purchased in advance. The concerts will be held in Smith Recital Hall at the SDSU School of Music and Dance at 6:00 p.m. on various Mondays.
