Yamma Ensemble returns to the Midwest
By Arts Midwest
We’re excited to welcome back Yamma Ensemble for their second tour as part of the 2011–2013 Arts Midwest World Fest!
The group arrives this week to begin a tour through the western states in our region:
Wausau, WI – April 15-21, 2012
Detroit Lakes, MN – April 22-28, 2012
Devils Lake, ND – April 29-May 5, 2012
Hill City, SD – May 6-12, 2012
During their previous tour in fall 2011, Yamma Ensemble hosted inspiring hands-on workshops and demonstrations, sharing their unique musical blend with students who were excited to meet people from another country and learn about the culture of Israel.
Their concerts highlighted the extraordinary musicianship of these performers and drew audiences from across each community. As Kara Sherman, executive director of The Wilson Performing Arts Center in Red Oak, IA, noted:
“The impact on our community was huge! The students, teachers, parents, and community members that had the opportunity to experience one of the workshops or the final concert of the Yamma Ensemble are still talking about this event nearly a month later and want to know when I will be bringing them back again!”
