The University of Tennessee's Ready for the World Music Series brings renowned artists to perform and talk about musical styles and literature from diverse regions around the world. Faculty artists, guest artists, and music historians will discuss the classical music traditions from each of those regions; followed by a performance providing representative samples. Each program is designed to demonstrate the rich musical influences each of these regions have had on the traditions of western classical music. Also included will be exhibits by artists from each region, a display of cultural artifacts and information, as well as refreshments that represent the culinary diversity of each region.

Ready for the World Music Series: Bulgaria features music from a land of several ancient civilizations. The asymmetrical meters and haunting sonorities captivate audiences with their mystic qualities and profound expression, depicting nostalgia of village life in the bread-basket of Europe.

Located at Sandra G. Powell Recital Hall in the Natalie L. Haslam Music Center
