About Our Cultural Outreach Programs

Many of the talented artists we present in our World Tour of Music concert series and other musical events help us expand our outreach with smaller public workshops across the region the week prior to their larger-venue public concerts. With many thanks to the libraries, senior centers, and other organizations who welcome us we are pleased to present the following public workshops. Watch this space for more events as we fill out our concert schedule.

Urban Troubadour, headed by flautist Jane Berkner, is an ensemble of top-notch musicians from Northeast Ohio. Don’t miss these introductory library workshops shown below . Urban Troubadour musicians will informally discuss the intertwining of French society and culture in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Using Power Point presentations of art and playing excerpts of music, they will show how French artists were involved with the Paris Opera, take a closer look at the music of Debussy and trace the migration of French musical style to the United States through the music of the flute.
These talks will provide a context for the big concert at The Akron-Summit County Public Library, 60 South High Street, Akron, Ohio, 44326, on Sunday, April 26, 2020, at 2 pm.

Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach opens it 2020/21 World Tour of Music series with Alla Boara. The ensemble is the vision of Cleveland Drummer and Composer Anthony Taddeo. The mission of Alla Boara is to showcase the incredible diversity of Italy’s folk music and history. The compositions and arrangements of these almost extinct folk songs are based on the 1954 recordings of Smithsonian Folkways researcher Alan Lomax. Pairing the performance with selected field recordings and projected images from Alan Lomax’s journey, Alla Boara aims to inspire Italian-Americans and, by extension, Americans of any ethnic heritage to take pride in their musical roots and relate to the cultural relevance of this music. The group features the talents of Amanda Powell (Apollo’s Fire) on vocals, Dan Bruce on guitar, Tommy Lehman on trumpet, Ian Kinnamon on bass, Clay Colley on accordion / keyboard and Anthony Taddeo (Helen Welch / Hey Mavis) on percussion.
The group will be performing two concerts. The first is in Boardman on October 22, 2020. The second in in Medina on October 24, 2020. At the Boardman concert Alla Boara will also collaborating with the Broadman High School Jazz Band. Both concerts are free, but reservations are recommended by registering online or calling 330-722-2541.
