Performances for local schools
Jugalbandi (Jyool-gull-bon-dee) is an Indian musical term referring to the part of a Raga when the musicians engage in a conversation, a give-and-take. Many times this has a playful quality to it.
Jugalbandi — a project of the Sebastopol Community Center started in the fall of 2000. The program is designed to provide local schoolchildren with the opportunity to both enjoy the performance of and interact with artists performing in music, storytelling, dance and theater.
Our continued thanks go out to Greg Brown, Nina Gerber and Red House Records, who continue to provide ongoing support to this program thru sales of the live Greg Brown Kate Wolf Festival double CD and Nina Gerber's own CDs. Click here to purchase!
We also extend appreciation and thanks to the following supporters of the program: Community Foundation Sonoma County and the Kiwanis Club of Sebastopol. Their support has helped to ensure that this program is available to all children, regardless of financial situation, and has allowed us to extend our program to cover busing costs for all classes that require busing in order to attend. THANK YOU!
