The Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series brings world-renowned musicians to Salem every year for performances and residency activities including master classes, student composers' readings and classroom presentations.
On March 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Hudson Hall, we present sitar master Arjun K. Verma, accompanied by tabla master Abhijit Banerjee and Nazan Aktas on tanpura.
Arjun’s music has received critical acclaim from leading publications, including the New York Times, Times of India, Sruti Magazine, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and the San Francisco Chronicle.
Sponsored by Willamette University and directed by Professor Emerita Anita King from 1983-2014, the series is currently directed by Artist in Residence Jean-David Coen. The program is supported through an endowment established by The Collins Foundation in the 1990's to honor the late Grace Goudy, an original trustee of the foundation.
