Through an Arts Illiana program, students at Forest Park Elementary and Jackson Township Elementary were treated to a musical performance Thursday.
Mauvais Sort, based out of Quebec, Canada, performed at both schools Thursday, bringing its blend of folk and rock music.
Forest Park and Jackson Township art teacher Traci Miller, who is also affiliated with Arts Illiana, helped bring the group to both schools.
"This was set up to educate in diversity," Miller said. "It's an outreach program."
Miller said the program, Arts Midwest World Fest, is a "global arts and education and outreach performing arts program designed to provide inspiring arts enrichment."
The program was sponsored by Indiana State University, Ivy Tech Community College, the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College.
A total of four performers were invited to take part in the program, including musical groups from China, Japan and Israel.
All four musical acts also conducted free concerts at each of the colleges that sponsored the program.
Miller said Mauvais Sort was set to provide one hour performances at each Clay County elementary Thursday.
