Tune in to our June exhibit, which highlights Worthington's musical past.

Photographs of Worthington's bicentennial celebration, held in 2003, offer evidence that in addition to livening up a party, music can also remind us of our shared cultural heritage. Native American drum circles, jazz bands and klezmer ensembles are among the styles that have enriched and echoed the diversity of our community. Citizens in Worthington's sister city of Sayama, Japan, shared a Taiko drumming performance during the Worthington delegation's last visit to Sayama in 2009.
