25 September - Gamelan Open House

Gamelan Open House
Tuesday, September 25, 2007
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. @
Hyde Park Union Church
Our annual open house at Hyde Park Union Church is an ideal introduction to gamelan music and the people who play it. Under expert tutelage, you'll learn to play a simple song on a variety of gamelan instruments. Our experienced players will also present some more advanced pieces for your inspiration. People of all musical backgrounds are welcome to attend -- all you need to bring is a desire to learn. For those coming directly from school or work, there will be snacks!

This year's open house will be special in that it will be the kick-off for the
wayang kulit performance on November 17. Please plan to attend the open house if you are joining the beginning gamelan class. Please contact for details.
