McCain performance 'Music of the Sun' inspired by Native American culture

Monday, Sept. 29, 2014

       

 

MANHATTAN — Kansas State's University's McCain Performance Series is showcasing Native American culture in the performance "Music of the Sun" with ETHEL and Robert Mirabal at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 10, at McCain Auditorium.

For thousands of years, humankind has turned toward the sun for inspiration, be it spiritual, philosophical or poetic. In many Native American cultures, each day begins with "running to the sun," a fusion of spiritual and physical discipline — a daily search for the sacred.

In "Music of the Sun," ETHEL, the pioneering string quartet, and Mirabal, a Grammy-winning Native American flutist, will present a program inspired by the sun mythology of Native Americans. Using the instruments of the string quartet, Native American flutes and drums and the spirited voices of students and community members, ETHEL and Mirabal will create a cross-cultural contemporary music event.

Tickets for "Music of the Sun" with ETHEL and Robert Mirabal start at $17, plus applicable taxes and fees, and are available now at the McCain Auditorium box office, online at http://www.k-state.edu/mccain, or by calling 785-532-6428.
