FSU's Cultural Events Series to Present Tibetan Monks in "Sacred Music Sacred Dance for World Healing"
A taste of Tibet comes to Frostburg State University on Sunday, March 3, when the Tibetan Monks from the Drepung Loseling Monastery will present "Sacred Music Sacred Dance for World Healing" at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center's Pealer Recital Hall.
The show is part of FSU's Cultural Events Series.
The performance promises to transport audiences to the exotic world of Tibet with the famous multiphonic singers, who practice a type of overtone singing unique to the Tibetan culture, along with masked dancers clad in colorful costumes and accompanied by traditional temple instruments. The ten dances are believed to generate energies conducive to world healing.
Sponsored by Richard Gere Productions and the Drepung Loseling Institute Monastery, an affiliate of Emory University of Atlanta, Ga., this production is part of the Mystical Arts of Tibet tours endorsed by the Dalai Lama. The monks have appeared at Carnegie Hall and shared the stage with Paul Simon, Sheryl Crow, and the Beastie Boys, among others.
The monks have released two CDs that have achieved a top 10 listing on U.S. new age charts, and were featured on the Golden Globe nominated soundtrack of the movie "Seven Years in Tibet."
Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $8 for children under 17. Dinner theatre specials are available prior to the performance at the following dinner theatre partner restaurants: Fratelli's Italian Restaurant; Giuseppe's Italian Restaurant; JB's Steak Cellar; Leone's Italian Restaurant and Oxford House.
