Yamma Ensemble, Israel’s foremost world music group, performs original Hebrew music and traditional songs of the Jewish diaspora. The band’s soulful, captivating sounds emerge from ancient instruments typical of the area. Songs come from Jewish communities throughout the region such as Yemen, Iraq, and Spain, as well as Hasidic traditions. The ensemble’s first visit to Athens will showcase the rich musical heritage and spirituality of the ancient and modern cultures from which they have emerged.
Performances for Young People
This program is designed to expose K-12 students to the performing arts at a young age by facilitating in-person, culturally diverse experiences for them. The program’s purpose is to inspire the next generation of artists and arts supporters. The costs of these performances are generously subsidized by friends of the Performing Arts Center who share that vision. Parents, guardians, and teachers are encouraged to exercise their personal judgement when determining if programs are appropriate for their children and students. Admission to Performances for Young People is $2 for students and $4 for adults. Students must be at least six years old to attend. Large school groups should use the order form for reservations (forthcoming). Home school groups should contact the box office at (706) 542-4400 or in person Monday-Friday, 10:00 am-5:00 pm.
