Midori & Friends’ Celebrate! Music program invites young learners to become global citizens in an active exploration of world music. By learning about the richness of cultural traditions, works of art, and musical customs around the globe, in class and through live performances, students cultivate a global perspective that nurtures empathy and understanding.
Celebrate! Music brings engaging music ensembles from around the world and corresponding workshops into New York City public schools. Students experience live artist performances and interactive workshops with Teaching Artists, deepening their understanding of a particular musical tradition over the course of a celebratory three-session residency. Midori & Friends provides professional development for classroom teachers to help facilitate curriculum connections in the classroom and school community.
