Cultural series at Penn State Harrisburg brings performers from around the world

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — The new Mukund S. Kulkarni Cultural Series provides Penn State Harrisburg the opportunity to bring national and international performances to campus annually, allowing the community to experience a variety of different cultures through the arts.

The series kicks off its inaugural year with three acts from across the globe, including: Namaste India, showcasing the folk and classical dance of India; Nobuntu, a female a cappella quintet from Zimbabwe, Africa; and The Fitzgeralds, a Celtic fiddling and step-dancing family from the Ottawa Valley, Canada.

The series is made possible thanks to more than $1 million in gifts from several donors in honor of Kulkarni, who retired June 30 as chancellor of the Harrisburg campus.
