The Music Center on Tour performances serve as models of artistic excellence, inspiring creative thinking and introducing young audiences to the world’s diverse cultural traditions. Our artists represent and celebrate the finest artistic contribution of the world’s cultures – from the colorful regional dances of Mexico to the exquisite music of China, from the pulsating rhythms of Brazil to the golden harmonies of 20th century America.
More than 70 performances in music, dance, theatre, and storytelling are available from an internationally acclaimed roster of artists who have been seen across the globe in films, theaters, concert halls, television shows, and museums.
The Music Center on Tour school assemblies are designed to complement and enhance what students are learning in the classroom through meaningful curriculum connections and universal themes that carry across cultures, styles, and content areas. Assemblies include written teacher preparation materials that contain background information on the artist and specific performances, as well as pre- and post-performance activities for the classroom and connections to multiple curricular areas.
