The Robert E. Brown Center for World Music offers community members the opportunity to learn and play traditional Balinese Gamelan music under the direction of I Ketut Gede Asnawa, a master gamelan musician and composer at the University of Illinois. A gamelan is an orchestra consisting mainly of keyed metallophones, gongs, and drums, often functioning as accompaniment to dance, dramas, and other Balinese performance arts.
As part of the center’s outreach programming, these Monday evening classes from 6pm to 8pm are open to all, free of charge, with no prior experience required. Classes are located in Room 0300(formerly Room 1188) of School of Music at 1114 W. Nevada Street, with the closest entrance located on the Oregon Street side of the building. No credit is offered and registration is not needed for these classes. However, participants join the ensemble with an understanding that regular attendance is required in order to enjoy the responsibility of making music in an orchestra where everyone depends on the contribution of every player.
