Harper College’s Community Music and Arts Center presents The World Music Ensemble in concert.

The concert will take place 6 to 7 p.m. Saturday, December 17, at the Performing Arts Center, 1200 W. Algonquin Road in Palatine.

Under the direction of Issa Boulos, the ensemble explores a repertoire of classical, folk and popular music from all corners of the world and diverse cultural traditions. Through composing, arranging and improvising for a combination of Western and non-Western instruments, this talented group performs unique interpretations of melodies from around the world, including works from Argentina, India, Lebanon, Iran, U.S., Ireland, Brazil, Azerbaijan, France and Turkey.

The World Music Ensemble is a free Continuing Education (non-credit) class that is open to all community members with musical experience. Participants must be willing to perform in at least two concerts per semester. All instruments are welcome, and ability to read music is a plus but not required. An audition is required, usually during the first class meeting of each semester.

Tickets are $7 for students with ID or $10 for general admission.
