Live from the Diversity Stage
The key word here is diversity. WHFR has a reputation for it’s eclectic musical format of diverse genres of independent and local artists. It has been our pleasure to broadcast live from the Diversity Stage at the Concert of Colors in the Max Fischer Music Center.
In keeping with the traditions of WHFR, the Concert of Colors featured some of the every best in cross-cultural entertainment. There were blues artists, Middle Eastern artists, storytellers, reggae, Latin jazz, and so much more. The Diversity Stage featured something for even the most discriminating musical tastes. Many cultures, many musical styles, coming together in harmony, speaking one universal language…music.
The various cultures of students that are here at HFCC were also well represented at the Concert of Colors, like professional belly dancer Kendra Ray, who performed during a set by Zap Torro. WHFR staff members were involved in every aspect of the event from manning the vender table to organizing the flow backstage. The relationships that have been developed at WHFR with local and independent artists were orchestrated into a rainbow of cultural delight. Although the Concert of Colors takes place only one weekend out of a year, the lessons that we glean from the experience should last a lifetime.
