Robert E. Brown Center for World Music

The Robert E. Brown Center for World Music promotes understanding and appreciation of world traditions of music and dance, primarily through active study of performance with tradition-bearing artists. It engages visiting and local artists to teach and perform; offers instruction in world music and dance traditions to University students, faculty, and staff, and to the general community; maintains ongoing performance ensembles; arranges concerts, lectures, workshops, and other performance opportunities; sends its visiting artists and artist-associates into public schools to teach for extended periods (a semester or a year); and maintains a website calendar to publicize world music and dance performances in Champaign-Urbana and the surrounding region.
