If you love world music, Greencastle, Indiana, is the place to be this week. For the third successive year, DePauw University School of Music is honored to host Silkroad’s Global Musician Workshop (May 30-June 5). The GMW workshop, which brings nearly 100 participating musicians to campus from around the globe, reconvenes on May 30 and continues for seven full days, including six straight nights of live music in two venues for an extraordinary week of world music.
Although registration to participate as a musician has closed, several evening events are open to all to attend free of charge, including the exceptional GMW Faculty Concerts on Wednesday and Thursday nights. The first of these performances, co-sponsored by the Greencastle Summer Music Festival, will take place in Gobin United Methodist Church (307 Simpson), and the second in Kresge Auditorium, located within DePauw’s Green Center for the Performing Arts (605 S. College Avenue), followed by four equally inspiring faculty-led Participant-Artist Concerts (June 2–5), also in Kresge. All begin at 7:30 p.m.
This year’s all-star international faculty, directed by Silk Road Ensemble cellist MIKE BLOCK, includes HANNEKE CASSEL (Celtic fiddle), SANDEEP DAS (Indian tabla), DANNY MEKONNEN (Ethiopian-American saxophones), BRUCE MOLSKY (Old-time Appalachian fiddle), HANKUS NETSKY (Klezmer multi-instrumentalist), AOIFE O’DONOVAN (bluegrass vocals and guitar), EDWARD PEREZ (Afro-Latin bass), BASSAM SABA (Arabic multi-instrumentalist), SHANE SHANAHAN (world percussion) and WU MAN (Chinese pipa).
