Feminine Fusion

S4-34: Around the World


“We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community..”  – Dorothy Day


With each new technology, it seems our world gets smaller.  Now, more than ever, we are interacting with individuals across the globe, becoming a global community.  And this has allowed artists to incorporate their own unique cultural nuances into so-called “classical” music.  This week, we take a trip around the globe.
