This event has ended.

As part of Teachers College, Columbia University “Diversity in Classical Music Project”, ENSEMBLE DU MONDE explore the rich history of classical music in a program that features composers from myriad backgrounds including African American and Jewish descent, and is highlighted by Béla Bartók, a genius who during World War II escaped his native homeland of Hungary to immigrate to America to start a new life.

These composers and their heroic stories of struggle, in their own way, changed fabric of music, as we know it in America and throughout the world. 

Hosted by poet Lorraine Currelley, special guests include American icons Carol Jenkins and Reginald Van Lee who will narrate inspirational poems of Langston Hughes and Tamam Tracy Moncur.
