Dave Ruch Presents:
"World Communities"
Saturday March 3rd - 1PM

"World Communities" is a 40 minute concert program for ages 5-12, which uses songs, humor and interactive dialogue to excite children in their studies of the various cultures around the world. With his guitar, Indian tabla drum, European octave mandolin, traditional Native American cowhorn rattles and more, Dave leads the audience on a fun-filled musical journey across the world.

Children become active participants in their own learning as they sing along (in English, Nigerian, Italian, Japanese and Iroquois!), answer questions and act out songs. Some audience members will even be invited to play the Iroquois rattles, and all children will have a chance to touch and play one of the instruments after the concert. Topics covered include the unique ways in which people around the world live (past and present), and perhaps most importantly, the many similarities that we all share. Dave also talks about his own eye-opening trip to India in 1992.

A professional musician and educator based in Buffalo NY, Dave gives over 325 concerts & workshops each year for schools, libraries, folk festivals, historical societies, museums and community events.
