From India’s capital to America’s Magnolia City, the globe-trotting Gandharva Choir is making a pit stop at the Wortham on its way to the Kennedy Center’s International Serenade! Choral Festival, part of the festivities surrounding JFK’s 100th birthday. “This group is the oldest school of classical dance and music from New Delhi,” says Hari Dayal, Indo-American Association executive director. “They’re only [in America] for ten days, but we’ve been able to exploit that to get them down to Houston!” This 20-piece ensemble, Dayan explains, “specializes in adapted ragas, where instead of instrumentalists or vocalists getting solos, the entire choir gets to participate, creating a very special sound.” The concert will explore India’s many languages and cultures through their folk songs. “[It’s] essentially a musical tour through the continent!”

7 p.m. June 25. 501 Texas. For information, call 832-487-7000 or visit houstonfirsttheaters.com. $35 to $75.
