Event description

Description

A rare and magical opportunity to visit the amazing Indonesian gamelan percussion orchestra in it's store room in the Department of Music at the University of York. Sit amongst the fabulous gongs and metallophones, learning about York's gamelan and making our own music. This is heaven on earth for anyone who loves banging things. Thanks to the padded beaters the sounds are mesmeric and magical.


Full directions will be emailed to you with your ticket confirmation.

Please note, space is tightly limited. EVERY adult and EVERY child needs a ticket.

"We all really enjoyed the Gamelan session. The informal approach worked really well giving the children the chance to explore the instruments, to touch, bang, listen and feel vibrations. David had a very natural workshop leading style which helped everyone feel welcome in an unfamiliar environment. The mini performance at the end was really beautiful. The babies particularly seemed to be in a trance!!!”
