Letter: CalArts world music a treasure for the senses

I have just experienced a special weekend of music and dance right in our own backyard — the Santa Clarita Valley, the 2012 Spring World Music and Dance Festival at the California Institute of the Arts.

Friday night was the music of India and Mexico, Saturday night an excellent percussion concert and Sunday night Javanese music.

All of this was open and free to all to enjoy, as well as a picnic on the grass of the Pavilion of the Herb Alpert School of Music, which was hosted by the school’s dean of the school. I had the good fortune to meet and visit with Dean David Rosenboom, who presented the programs and performers in a warm, friendly and inviting manner for all in attendance.

After living in the SCV for many years — my revisit to the CalArts campus was a unique experience, and I wish to thank the institute, the School of Music and the dean for providing such a wonderful multicultural presentation of music and dance for our community.

CalArts is truly a classic treasure for our valley.
