Anouska ShankarMonday, March 12
12:00 – 1:00 pm in the Library Auditorium

Steven Schmidt, General Manager of the City of Rochester Music Department, will conduct a concert preview of the Riverside Concerts-featuring Anoushka Shankar which is scheduled for March 26th at the Civic Center, on March 12th at the RPL. Steve will discuss the artist’s new “Traveler” project highlighting her biography, her familial relationship with Ravi Shankar who taught the Beatles’ George Harrison how to play the sitar, and how she is infusing traditional Indian music with Spanish forms to create an entirely new World Music sound. We will also listen to selected tracks from her “Traveller” CD. The program will be 45-minutes long and you are invited to bring your lunch while you enjoy the concert preview. This project was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.
