Culture Connect Featured Event
No prior experience necessary. Your child can visit on the first day to try the gamelan--if they like it, sign them up! The Youth Gamelan Ensemble was founded as a Center for the Arts program in 2002 by Wesleyan Artist in Residence I.M. Harjito, who guides the group along with University Professor of Music Sumarsam and Director Joseph Getter. The ensemble is open to all children ages 7 to 14. The group learns traditional music from Java, Indonesia, and rehearses Saturday mornings from 10am to 11am during both the fall and spring semesters. Fall classes conclude with a performance with the Wesleyan Gamelan Ensemble on Thursday, December 5 at 7pm.
