Gamelan Workshop

Saturday, June 22,
1:00 pm
to 3:45 pm EDT
Free - Pre-registration Required

Event Navigation

Come and try your hand at playing Indonesian gamelan! Sleeping Fox, an ensemble of instruments including gongs, metallophones and drums, traveled from Bali to the Upper Valley in 2003 and is now resident in Boston. These beautiful instruments will be making a return visit to Lebanon on June 22 for a workshop led by Emeric Viani, director of the Cambridge Youth Gamelan.

Gamelan playing is accessible to players with all levels of experience, including none at all. We will offer two workshops:

1-2:15 pm – Youth Workshop, Ages 8-18.

2:30-3:45 pm – Adult workshop

There is no cost to participate, but space is limited so pre-registration is required. Observers also welcome, and beginner participants are welcome to come early to listen to the first workshop.

Accessibility Note: The instruments can be quite loud, so if you have sensitivity to sound or loud noises, we recommend coming prepared with earplugs or headphones.

Emeric Viani is a music educator in the greater Boston area with special interests in non-traditional curriculum, world music, choral music, and Balinese gamelan. He is the Co-Founder and Artistic Director for the Cambridge Youth Gamelan, a Balinese gamelan open to students in Grades 2 – 12 in Cambridge, MA.
