Lotus Festival 2008 Preview

It’s fall again, and for many residents of Bloomington, Indiana that can mean only one thing. The Lotus Festival of World Music will be taking over much of the downtown with the sights and sounds of one of the area’s most anticipated events. The line-up this year includes musicians from Africa to the northern shores of Scotland. And, as executive director Lee Williams says, a couple of themes have emerged .

David Wood

Originally from Leavenworth, Kansas, David Wood moved to Bloomington in 2005. He received his Bachelor of Music from Kansas State University, and his Master of Music from the University of North Texas. He studied ensemble direction at the Jacobs School of Music's Early Music Institute and joined WFIU in 2006 as an announcer. In 2008 he became WFIU's Music Director and also served as Art Bureau Chief from 2008-2013. David’s interests include Irish music and language (particularly traditional singing), music and religion, running, the outdoors, and, of course, classical music!
