Youth Gamelan Ensemble Classes Start

World Music Hall

$30 for a semester of lessons and rehearsals

Sign up your child for Wesleyan Youth Gamelan! Saturday morning classes are held from 10am to 11am in World Music Hall, starting on Saturday, January 24, 2015.

Only $30 for a semester of lessons and rehearsals. No prior experience necessary; open to children ages 7 to 14. 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 group learns traditional music from Java, Indonesia, and rehearses during both the spring and fall semesters. The spring classes conclude on Saturday, April 25, 2015, and the spring performance with the Wesleyan Gamelan Ensemble is on Thursday, April 30, 2015 at 7pm.
