The Graduate Music Series showcases the performance, compositional, and research capabilities of graduate music students, alumni, and other affiliates.

The third installment will feature two graduate ethnomusicology students: koto player Garrett Groesbeck's "Koto and Guzheng: A Public-Facing Introduction," and Ph.D. candidate and sarangi player Suhail Yusuf Khan's "The Ritual Poetics of Rāg: From the Mystical to the Worldly," a chapter from his ongoing dissertation. In addition, Khan will perform melodies on the sarangi (North Indian bowed instrument) composed in Rāg Shahāna, with tabla player Bhupinder Singh Chaggar.
