MUSIC BEYOND BORDERS:
World Music and Dance come to the Morristown Green
The Mayo Performing Arts Center and Morris Arts present their fifth annual Music Beyond Borders free summer outdoor lunchtime concert series on the Morristown Green, featuring music and dance from South America, Africa, eastern Europe and Ireland.
The series begins June 24, 2014, and runs every other Tuesday through Aug. 5. Programs start at 12:30 pm.
Each Music Beyond Borders program will feature a performance of world music and/or dance reflecting the diverse culture and population of the area.
Brown bag a meal, stop by while walking your dog, take a lunch break from work or bring friends to experience a world music- and dance celebration while getting to know your neighbors. The world is literally at your doorstep!
