Ohio University’s fourth annual World Music and Dance Festival wrapped up on Saturday, Feb. 1 with a concert held in Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium.

The festival, co-founded and directed by Associate Professor of Multicultural Music Education Paschal Yao Younge and his wife Zelma Badu-Younge, associate professor in the Division of Dance, “introduces different ways of conceptualizing the arts and potentially opens up new avenues of creativity, expression and aesthetic appreciation for students,” according to Yao Younge.

Guest artists at the concert included: Pei-Ching Wu, Ju Percussion, Taiwan; Dr. Ellie Mannette, the “Grandfather of the Steel Pan;” David Hostetler, sculptor; Patrick Parson, artistic director of Ballet Creole (Canada) and several Ohio University Ensembles.
