Myers-Wilkins Elementary School organizes an after-school, African-based drum circle group made up of 23 students from grades 4 and 5. Since its creation at Nettleton Elementary 15 years ago, World Beat has used authentic dress, percussion instruments, and rhythms to perform original, global-style compositions regionally and throughout the state. Recent gigs include school functions, community fundraisers and Duluth Mayor Emily Larson’s inauguration. Directors of the program include Teri Akervik, Michelle Bowker and Adam Metzer.

7pm Fri 5/6 at Sacred Heart Music Center
