Don't miss the Rose Ensemble and Piffaro, Wednesday, Nov. 15 at Chenery Auditorium at 7 p.m. This is a concert you will be talking about for a long time. We're still fondly remembering the Rose Ensemble performance from 2016. ...

The Michigan Festival of Sacred Music prides itself on the bringing the best of sacred music from around the world to Kalamazoo. And sometimes it's already here. So looking forward to this concert. Dawud Wharnsby and The Red Sea Pedestrians 7:00 pm, Nov. 16, Dalton Theatre, Fine Arts Building, Kalamazoo Canadian born poet and songwriter Dawud Wharnsby began sharing his songs with audiences as a street performer in his late teens. Over two decades later, his career as a troubadour has yielded a string of fifteen solo albums, five poetry anthologies, numerous sound-track credits, performances in some of the world’s most prestigious theatres and collaborations with several celebrated artists (Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Yusuf/Cat Stevens). The Red Sea Pedestrians are a full-blown, instrument-swapping fusion between tradition and the here-and-now. We’re talkin’ high-energy world- beat grooves, hypnotic laments from the earth, songs of celebration and wonder; a warped and beautiful blend of American Roots, Rock, Klezmer, Gypsy, Classical and Jazz, all filtered through the band’s original vision. The RSP are a melting pot of six distinct singer/songwriter/multi- instrumentalists, almost a self-contained variety show. ...

Thursday, Nov. 16, 7 p.m. at Dalton Theatre on Kalamazoo College campus — Canadian born poet and songwriter Dawud Wharnsby began sharing his songs with audiences as a street performer in his late teens. Over two decades later, his career as a troubadour has yielded a string of fifteen solo albums, five poetry anthologies, numerous sound-track credits, performances in some of the world’s most prestigious theatres and collaborations with several celebrated artists including Yusuf/Cat Stevens. Within sacred-music circles, Wharnsby is often cited as a pioneer in the composition of English hymns, inspired by Qur’anic spirituality. His universalist approach to religion keeps Dawud actively engaged with musical inter-faith initiatives and peace efforts worldwide.

The Red Sea Pedestrians' all encompassing sound has high-energy world-beat grooves, hypnotic laments from the earth, songs of celebration and wonder; a warped and beautiful blend of American Roots, Rock, Klezmer, Gypsy, Classical and Jazz, all filtered through the band’s original vision. It is first defined by the sweet interplay between clarinet and violin, further colored by a kaleidoscope of guitar, banjo, keyboard and mandolin, and driven by a rhythm section deep in the pocket. Multi-layered lyrics, rich harmonies, and masterful playing complete the experience. Their captivating live shows and ambitious CDs have been getting rave reviews and building a dedicated fan base throughout Michigan’s independent music community for over a decade.
Tickets at the door: General admission $20, Senior (65 and over) $12, Students 24 or under (with valid student ID) $5. They can also be purchased online at mfsm.us
