Barbara Smith Amphitheater @ UHM Music Department
Outdoor concert, bring a cushion
After a nearly three-year performance hiatus, the UH Javanese Gamelan Ensemble (Gamelan Kyai Gandrung, Byron Moon, director) will present a concert at the UHM Music Department’s Barbara Smith Amphitheater at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday November 26, 2022.
Repertoire for the concert will include selections from both the Yogyakarta and Surakarta central Javanese gamelan traditions, including music used to accompany dance, puppet theater, and for listening pleasure.
Performers include community members with many years of gamelan performance experience and students from the Music Department’s Javanese gamelan class.
For this outdoor concert, the audience is recommended to bring light rain protection (in case of “Mānoa mist”), and a cushion to sit on. No tall chairs, please.
This performance is a cooperative activity of the UHM Music Department and the Hawai‘i Gamelan Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
