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.

Spring classes conclude with a performance with the Wesleyan Gamelan Ensemble on Thursday, May 2, 2019 at 7pm.

Wesleyan owns one of the finest sets of gamelan instruments in the world, a set from Yogyakarta of mostly gong and metallophone instruments made of bronze.
