The Youth Gamelan Ensemble at Wesleyan was founded in 2002 by Artist in Residence I.M. Harjito, who guides the group along with Winslow-Kaplan Professor of Music Sumarsam and Director Joseph Getter. Students learn traditional music from Java, Indonesia on Wesleyan's gamelan instruments. Classes conclude with a performance with the Wesleyan Gamelan Ensemble on Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 7pm.

Wesleyan owns one of the finest, most beautiful gamelans in the world, a set of mostly gong and metallophone instruments made of bronze.
