Women of the World -- four vocalists from around the globe who come together in friendship and music-making -- return to the Series for a performance that celebrates the beauty in the diverse ways that people from cultures all over the world express themselves through song.
A new force in Nordic World music is the young Danish trio, Dreamers’ Circus. Contemporary and innovative in their approach, they draw inspiration from the deep traditions of folk music in the region and reshape them into something bright, shiny and new. Their art embraces music from Denmark and Sweden as well as Iceland, Finland and the far reaches of the windswept Faroe Islands. Dreamersʼ Circus are Nikolaj Busk on piano and accordion, Ale Carr on Nordic cittern and Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen also of the Danish String Quartet, on violin. The ensemble has won five prestigious Danish Music Awards and frequently collaborates with the Danish String Quartet and the Copenhagen Philharmonic.

Celebrity Series audiences were electrified by More Forever, Tao’s stunning collaboration with dancer Caleb Teicher in January 2020.
