In March, Carmen Aravena, Director to the CIE and Brian Justison, Associate Professor to the School of Music, traveled to Havana, Cuba with 6 Millikin students studying various elements of Cuban culture. Their primary focus was the exploration of percussion performance techniques for popular and folkloric musical genres.

Students traveling to Cuba included members of Millikin’s World Percussion Ensemble “Latin Jazz Project.”  This ensemble, formed by Professor Brian Justison in the early 1990’s, exists as Millikin’s first multi-cultural music ensemble and one of the first in all of academia.

Travel was made possible through the continued generosity of Dr. Clarence G. Glenn and his continued support to the mission of the Center for International Education (CIE) and Millikin University.
