Summer Night of Lotus 2008

The Lotus Festival of World Music has been bringing artists from the around the world to Bloomington, Indiana since 1994. The festival, held in late September or early October, has continued to expand its focus. A few years ago, a festival preview in mid-summer was added to the docket, “Summer Night of Lotus.” Executive Director Lee Williams tells us what to expect this year and what’s different.

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.
