Music tends to be universal, and that’s exactly what musician Pavla Schedova from the Czech Republic of Dobrichovice has found in her travels. Schedova was in Manhattan to help celebrate the dedication of Manhattan’s Partner City Flag Plaza at City Park. Former Mayor of Manhattan’s Partner City, Vaclave Kracochvil says Manhattan’s changed a lot in the six years since he last visited. Kracochvil says partner cities are good because one is accepted and you can learn about the other city’s problems and how they live.
Meanwhile, the Trehusk Band of Dobrichovice will fill the air with folk song selections from Bohemia, Moravia and Prague from noon-1p.m. today (Friday) on Bosco Student Plaza at Kansas State University.
