Join us as we venture to the world’s most populous country, India, and delve into its rich culture. Eastern classical music and Western classical music related to India’s history meet in our first-ever collaboration with members of the Indian community. With the help of artistic advisor and local composer Kanniks Kannikeswaran, we created an orchestral exploration that offers a peek into India’s fascinating and colorful culture, along with a tabla player, Indian dancers, and the Greater Cincinnati Indian Community Choir.

Approximately 2 hours with a 15-minute intermission
