Join CIR for something wholly different! Beginning in October, we’re thrilled to bring noted story-teller and traveller Steve Horowitz to CIR to offer us four different windows into world culture. Steve gave a lecture on Iran here several months ago – and we’ve not heard our conference room full of such laughter!! It was easily one of the top-rated programs we’ve ever put on. This time around, Steve will offer two sessions on world music, one on language and cultural dynamics, and one on his three years in Iran. Steve was an ESL teacher for 14 years, and an ESL Program Director for 23 years. He created and hosted a world music radio show for 12 years. He had an international interview show for 2 years, and a TV show for 4. He has presented on Iran and read stories across the US for over 8 years now. Not to be missed!

  • Seminar 1 will ask What does world music mean? What is the benefit of understanding music created by other cultures even if we don’t know the language? He’ll look at different vocal and instrumental styles, and introduce different genres and forms. Monday, October 29th
  • Seminar 2 will continue the World Music discussion with a look at percussion, collaboration across cultures, and how various styles blend and morph into something new. Monday, November 19th
  • Seminar 3 will look at the Dynamics of Language and Cultural Adjustment, based on Steve’s three decades of working with people all around the world. Monday, January 14th
  • Seminar 4 will explore Three Years in Iran: Learning the Language and Culture. Monday, February 11th
