Experience the magic of India’s beauty through music with your Mount Vernon community at world-renowned musician Yogesh Samsi’s Solo Tabla Recital on Sunday, September 15 at City Springs’ performance hall.

Recognized as one of the most preeminent tabla virtuosos in the world, Pandit Yogesh Samsi is touring through the U.S., making a stop at Mount Vernon to bring his love of his culture to life through music. He has simultaneously scaled unprecedented heights of achievement in solo performance, accompaniment, and pedagogy within and beyond the scope of Hindustani Classical Music. This is a rare opportunity to hear and witness the artistry of this unique musical dynamo.

MV Percussion Artist Jerry Fields’s deep connection to a variety of cultures inspired him to invite his friend, musical mentor, and former colleague to our school as an External Expert for his Upper School Mod 1 course: Cultural Thali, exposing students to the diverse richness of India. Through the interaction of all five of the senses, the students will become respectfully and fearlessly curious about the world that they do not experience day by day.
