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.

World Tour of Music – The Leaves be Green: Springtime in England

Akron-Summit County Public Library
60 High Street
Akron, OH 44326

Ohio Regional Music Arts and Cultural Outreach and the Akron-Summit County Public Library bring to you The Leaves be Green: Springtime in England as the culminating concert in the Spring 2023 World Tour of Music residency. Cleveland-based early music ensemble, Les Délices, and young artists from Firestone Community Learning Center celebrate springtime with joyous music from the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Audiences will be transported by the beguiling sounds of ancient instruments – including lute, medieval fiddle, recorder, harp, and more – and enjoy songs and carols in English by William Byrd, Robert Fayrfax, Henry VIII, and others that see gardens in full bloom, birds singing from on high and dancing in the open air. The program is free, but registration is recommended. For more information call 419-853-6016.
