IMA World Health/Kara Eberle


early a foot of snow couldn’t keep our Local Goes Global concert from rocking the Carroll Arts Center on Friday night.

Everyone who braved the cold weather and slushy streets to attend the fundraiser had a wonderful time.

In case you missed it, here are some photos of the performances: (All photos by Ethan Glass)


IMA World Health teamed up with McDaniel College, some of the best talent around, and a superb cast of local sponsors to present the memorable evening.

Artists Shelley Ensor and Alice Chase Dorsey, Jon Seligman (percussion), and Christopher James (guitar and other strings) got things started with blues and gospel, while Alice Tung (accordion and viola) and Tim Jenkins (guitar) added tango.

The evening ended with all playing together in the best tradition of community musical collaborations.
