In another musical interlude at UTRGV, Journey West – an educational music program that chronicles the migration of melody through an interactive multimedia performance – will be offered at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 24, at the Performing Arts Complex on the Edinburg Campus.
Journey West tracks melodies and changing instrumentation beginning in the Middle East, traveling through Eastern to Western Europe and, ultimately, arriving in the United States. The program illustrates the primary factors in carrying melodies to distant lands: wars, imperialism, nomadic dispersion, mass emigrations due to political oppression, and musical crazes around the globe.
