Musicians as Cultural Communicators
Students come to Berklee to learn a range of skills and approaches to find success in the world of music. They bring with them a wealth of life and cultural experiences that enrich the community and are ultimately transmitted through their interactions with one another as well as with staff and faculty members. By sharing their traditions and music, students gain a heightened sense of cultural and musical values and find new and creative ways to merge them with what they are learning.
Global initiatives is at the heart of exploring and facilitating these cultural and musical exchanges. Below are images from the first half of 2015 portraying some of the starting points for these connections.
