Carter; Orchestra Rouh, an after-school and summer music program open to international students ages 7-17 in Kalamazoo; Bahar Ensemble, a collection of musicians from Kurdistan, Saudi Arabia, and America playing traditional Middle Eastern music; and Pavitra, Samadhi, and Poojani Attanayake, Portage Public School students and dance students of Susan Iervolina.
