K. SridharApril 8 7:30 p.m. Beckwith Recital Hall Tickets $30

K. Sridhar is a virtuoso of one of the world’s most complex instruments, the Sarod. He masterfully blends
two music traditions that coexist in India - that of the North (Hindustani) and of the South (Carnatic). A featured
artist on Peter Gabriel's RealWorld label, Sridhar began touring out of India in 1982 and has given hundreds
of concerts worldwide. As one critic put it, "A concert by K. Sridhar is a rare and distinctive offering – full of
heart," (The New Mexican, USA, 2007).  To his loyal listeners, K. Sridhar offers ongoing opportunities to
experience what he calls Nada Yoga or "union through sound."

DASH Ensemble
DASH EnsembleApril 29 7:30 p.m. Thalian Hall Tickets $18 $26 $32

Combining elements of modern, hip hop, floor work and physical theater, Artistic Director Gregory Dolbashian
has created his own unique style of contemporary dance with an urban flair. The DASH seeks to bring out
relatable human elements in all of its work using its complex and challenging movement language to express
ideas about growth, love, loss, war, and determination.

Birthdate (­­--) Death Date; the dash indicates lifespan. The DASH is life, and everything that our work focuses
on is about that life. Regardless of how big or how small, the events that comprise our lives are always epic.
These are the feelings and stories that we utilize to connect to our surrounding communities.
