Berklee India Ensemble Concert
The Enrichment Fund is sponsoring a school wide field trip to Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center on Thursday, May 18th . Bus will leave promptly at 9:30 and return at 11:30. Below is a synopsis about the performance:
Founded in 2011 by Annette Philip, the first Indian musician appointed as a faculty member at Berklee College of Music, the Berklee Indian Ensemble is a world renowned collective, known for its global Indian sound that honors traditions while boldly experimenting with a cross pollination of genres, cultures, and multidisciplinary art forms. A viral sensation with nearly 300 million views (accounting for 70% of Berklee’s total YouTube views), the Ensemble was in such high demand globally that it organically transitioned into a professional band in 2021, marking the Ensemble’s ten year anniversary. This pro entity is led by 11 full-time members representing India, Jordan, Iraq, Israel, Nigeria, Indonesia, Norway, the USA, and other regions across the globe.
