Consisting mostly of gong- and metallaphone-type instruments, the gamelan is an essential accompaniment to feasts and ceremonies. Beginning students of the Wesleyan Gamelan Ensemble will present an evening of Javanese music, performing a selection of repertoire for celebratory events, with a prelude by the Wesleyan Youth Gamelan Ensemble, under the direction of Joseph Getter.
