ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAM

Virtual Artist Residency Program (Grades K–12)

Available Now!

MIM’s virtual Artist Residency Program provides students opportunities to learn about music firsthand through a prerecorded, interactive, and fun performance. Students will participate in engaged and attentive listening, interpret cultural meaning, and interact with culture bearers in order to situate themselves in the global environment and foster appreciation of the world’s diverse cultures. As an optional bonus, students may attend a live Q&A session with the artist(s) via Zoom on selected dates.

Take a virtual journey to Puerto Rico and experience the beats and rhythms of bomba. Grupo BombAZo and special guests Ivelisse Diaz and Marién Torres López will teach participants about the three main components of bomba—singing, drumming, and dancing—in the 30-minute prerecorded workshop.
