The 16th Cimbalom World Congress is meeting October 26-30 in Valašské Meziříčí, a beautiful town in the eastern part of the Czech Republic. This is a gathering of hammered dulcimers from all around the world that meets every 2 years in a different country. The last one was in Hefei, China in 2019. Last year was missed because of the pandemic. Many countries have a version of the dulcimer that is used in both their classical and folk traditions and is often taught in conservatory. The registration forms will be available July 1st and are due by August 1st. Details HERE or visit the CWA Facebook page. Karen will be one of the persons representing the USA.
