The World in Our City
Friday, October 20th, 2017
The "World in Our City" comes alive through Washington Performing Arts’ Mars Urban Arts Initiative’s partnership with Multiflora Productions and the Market SW to present a FREE evening concert, featuring local musicians with roots in Mali and Ethiopia. Washington Performing Arts will feature Jefferson Middle School Jefferson Middle School Academy students who participate in our Capital Jazz program and the sounds of the popular Feedel Band and local legend Cheick Hamala Diabate. This community concert is the first MUAI installment of its "World in Our City" series, which focuses on the breadth of local artists living and working in Washington, D.C., with roots and connections to other parts of the world. Washington Performing Arts’ Mars Urban Arts Initiative is generously supported by Jacqueline Badger Mars and Mars, Incorporated.
