Fall Photos: Javanese Gamelan

On Thursday, December 7, 2017 beginning students of the Wesleyan Gamelan Ensemble presented 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. Consisting mostly of gong- and metallophone-type instruments, the gamelan is an essential accompaniment to feasts and ceremonies.
