The URI Music Department, the Kingston Chamber Music Festival, and the Tomaquag Museum are co-sponsoring a special event! Join us for a panel discussion about the relationship between Native American culture and classical music.

The influence of Indigenous musical traditions on classical composition invites meaningful exploration into artistry, ancestry, and intercultural collaboration. These ideas will be discussed with Jerod Impichcha̱achaaha' Tate, Emmy-award winning composer and citizen of the Chickasaw Nation; Camden Shaw, cellist of the Dover Quartet; Mary Linn, Curator of Cultural and Linguistic Revitalization at the Smithsonian; and Adam Hanna, classical trombone artist, professor in the URI Music Department, and citizen of the Chickasaw Nation.

This event is FREE and open to the public with advanced registration. A reception will follow.
