World Music Day Celebration

The Jackson District Library and the Jackson Symphony Orchestra are virtually celebrating World Music Day (Fete de la Musique) on June 21 at 6 PM.

An evening performance by Ara Topouzian Trio will bring the rhythmic sounds and stories of the Middle East to Jackson! Topouzian is a nationally recognized Armenian American, who mesmerizes audiences with the unique sound of the kanun, a 76-stringed Middle Eastern laptop harp.

You can watch this event live on Zoom or JDL’s Facebook page. To join on Zoom, click here. A recording will be also available afterwards until July 5 on JDL’s Facebook page.

This project is funded in part by Michigan Humanities, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
