Announcing the Arts Midwest World Fest 2015–2017 season

After another successful season of touring extraordinary music ensembles from around the world to our region, we are excited to announce the 2015–2017 season of Arts Midwest World Fest artists and communities. While planning is still in high gear, three of four ensembles have already been selected for this season. Baladino (Israel), Le Vent du Nord (Québec), and Aysenur Kolivar (Turkey) will join us starting in fall of 2015 to visit nine new Midwestern communities.

Alumni of another Arts Midwest program, Caravanserai: A Place Where Cultures Meet, renowned Turkish folksinger Aysenur Kolivar and her ensemble will join the lineup in 2016. We are thrilled to present this captivating songstress to our Arts Midwest World Fest audiences, as well as welcome Baladino and Le Vent du Nord back to the Midwest.

We’re also pleased to share that we have selected the nine participating communities for this two-year tour: Forest City, IA; Lebanon, IL; Adrian, MI; Thief River Falls, MN; Wahpeton, ND; Wilmington, OH; Brookings, SD; and Rhinelander, WI.

There’s much work on the horizon to prepare for the tours but we’re looking forward to another great season filled with exceptional artists and excited communities!
