OUT OF AFRICA: A MUSICAL SAFARI
June 2, 2012 at Music Academy of the West
Conducted by Dr. Eugene Rogers

The theme,  “OUT OF AFRICA: A MUSICAL SAFARI,” reflected the concert program,  based on music prepared with the assistance of Dr. Eugene Rogers, Associate Director of Choirs at the University of Michigan. An expert in East African music, Dr. Rogers has published three editions of Tanzanian Choral Music under the Hal Leonard World Music Series.

Lehmann Hall was transformed into Safari-like setting and the event featured signature cocktails and tasting tables with an African-themed menu. A silent auction offered unique experiences including an African Photo Safari. The evening concluded with interactive African drumming and dancing with audience participation.
