Israeli band members share their culture with Wausau students

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Students in Marathon County are learning about other cultures this week through music.

On Tuesday, an Israeli band known as the Yamma Ensemble paid a visit to Newman Catholic High School in Wausau.

The band was brought in by the Grand Theater and Arts Midwest, an organization devoted to bringing international artists to small and mid-sized communities.

Grand Theater Education Director Barbara Klofstad this is a unique opportunity "to foster not only arts education within the classrooms and within our school districts, but to also foster international and global relationships."

Yamma Ensemble will visit several other schools in the Wausau area before their performance Thursday night at the Grand Theater. That starts at 7:30 p.m.
