Two members of the prestigious Kenyan Administration Police Band (APB), Charles Njoka and Samson Gikunda, will be visiting the Jacobs School for two weeks of interactions with faculty, students, and Bloomington public schools, starting September 21. Alumnus Diana Nixon (DM ’10), faculty member Kim Carballo, and sophomore vocal performance student Liz Nixon visited Nairobi last March, providing performances, master classes, and coaching to high school, university, and adult musicians, including members of the APB. Now the APB members are coming to the U.S. to return the favor.
