The Sierra County Arts Council is pleased to present Ludi Hinrichs “THE JOY OF MUSIC ACROSS THE GLOBE” as part of our Artists in Schools program. Ludi will be performing a student assembly at Loyalton Elementary Multi-Purpose Room on Feb. 8 at 1:30pm. Ludi’s music is a reflection his own journeys to several continents, and the direct experience of performing and collaborating with master musicians and teachers from the US, India, Africa, Canada, Japan, Australia and Indonesia over the last four decades. Ludi offers our students the experience of hearing the unique beauty and commonality of diverse World cultures.
Ludi will perform samples of some of the World’s cultures utilizing voice, gong, harps, metallophones and wind instruments to visually and sonically open the student’s parameters of what music is, while actively requesting their participation, and at the same time enhancing the specific core elements of melody, rhythm, harmony, texture, structure and ensemble awareness.
Ludi has over forty-five years of teaching and performing in public schools and venues both in the US and abroad. Currently Ludi is lending his talents to teach our elementary students music at Downieville School. You may learn more about Ludi at his website www.ludihinrichs.com.
