Event description
Join the Cambridge Youth Gamelan for our annual summer series! Together, we'll explore traditional music from Bali.

About this event

Explore the Balinese gamelan gong kebyar!

The Cambridge Youth Gamelan is excited to host a brand new week-long summer session for anyone interested in learning how to play traditional Balinese gamelan music on the gamelan gong kebyar, the most popular gamelan ensemble in Bali. This is a great opportunity to try something new, meet new people, and learn about an incredibly rich and diverse culture.

After a two year hiatus due to the covid pandemic, the Cambridge Youth Gamelan is thrilled to be able to offer this summer workshop series. All classes will be held in the Endicott World Music Room at MIT (Building N-52) and will be led by experienced instructors from MIT's Balinese gamelan ensemble, Gamelan Galak Tika.

If you enjoy the workshop, then you can join the group for our weekly rehearsals starting in September 2022!

Open to students in Grades 2 - 12 regardless of prior musical experience. We are an inclusive learning community and we welcome beginners to our space on a regular basis!

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?There is metered parking on Massachusetts Avenue, Front Street, Windsor Street, State Street, and Main Street. All metered parking is 2 hour parking until 8pm unless otherwise indicated and can be paid via the Passport Parking app or coins. Our advice is to start with coins and switch to the app as the app will only allow you to park for 2 hours within a single zone, at which point you will be forced to move your car to avoid a ticket.

You can take the Red Line to Central or Kendall Square and walk down to the MIT Museum. You can also take the following busses which will bring you to within a couple of blocks of the museum: 1, 64, 70, 70A, and CT1. 

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?You can email us at any time at cambridgeyouthgamelan@gmail.com
