We're bringing a world of music to the stage at CMOM

From hip-hop to opera

World Music Day

It’s all about putting local talent on the stage as CMOM celebrates World Music Day on Saturday, June 22, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The lineup includes performances by Memphis Opera, jazz musicians, hip-hop artists and others highlighting a variety of genres. Supporting activities include making rhythm instruments, crafting cardboard guitars, decorating notes and more.

Did you know that children exposed to music have improved cognitive functioning? That it creates pathways in the brain that are developed through musical activities and that these can lead to the development of language, reading and mathematical skills?

Our performers include:

  • Ari & Blue Bunch: Hip Hop • Vocalist
  • Aven Arwood: Vocalist
  • Carter Threlkeld: Trumpet • Music Educator
  • Cequita Monique: Vocalist
  • Danza Azteca: Indigenous Dancers
