Each spring in central Virginia a unique handoff takes place at the Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Showcase. After nine months of learning from the best in their respective fields, students graduate with skills and a deep appreciation for traditional music, food and crafts such as Hindustani vocals, square dance calling, paper sculpture and Cambodian costume-making. The daylong celebration highlights the fruits of collaboration, as it welcomes new enrollees who prepare to carry historically relevant art forms forward.

Sunday, May 7. Free, noon. James Monroe’s Highland, 2050 James Monroe Pkwy. 924-3296.
