Wabash Welcomes Music Group from China

The Honeywell Center will welcome Tarim, a musical group from the People’s Republic of China for a special performance on Fri. March 16 at 7:30 p.m.  The concert is sponsored by Thermafiber, K & L Construction and Wabash County Arts Council, as part of the Arts Midwest World Fest.

Tarim is an ensemble of musicians and dancers from the Cultural Bureau of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.  Their music consists of songs of the Silk Road, the melodies of the Uygurs, Kazaks, and Kirkiz, and the rhythms of the Hui, Uzbek, and Tatars.  The music takes audiences on a tour of the spice markets, deserts, and vineyards of Western China, a land of vast contrast, scale and history.  
 
Tarim’s public performance will wrap up a week-long visit to the region, during which they will present interactive residencies in school classrooms.   Tickets for the concert are $14 for adults, $5 for students through college, and $5 for seniors 65 and older.   A free reception will be held immediately following the concert in the lobby, offering complimentary refreshments and the opportunity to meet with the musicians.  An exhibit on Eastern Asia created by Wabash Middle School students in coordination with Tarim’s visit to their classroom will be on display in the lobby as well.

Arts Midwest World Fest promotes appreciation for global uniqueness through music by hosting a series of international musical groups during two-year cycles.  Wabash was chosen as one of the nine host cities for the 2011-2013 series, which features a total of four international ensembles.  Arts Midwest selected Wabash due to its active arts community and relative location the Hartford City 3M plant, a major supporter of World Fest.
