Celebrate Musical Styles From Around the Globe
The annual Elmhurst University World Music Festival takes place each spring on our campus in the western Chicago suburbs.
About the World Music Festival
Launched in 2011, Elmhurst’s annual World Music Festival celebrates the music of cultures and countries across the globe. Focusing on a different genre each year, the Festival has featured performers such as Liz Carroll, Ambi Subramaniam, Victor Mendoza, Liam Teague and the Kontras Quartet in concert with the Elmhurst University Philharmonic Orchestra.
Every festival has been listed in the Daniel Pearl World Music Days in honor of the journalist and violinist who was killed by extremists in 2002.
