Come join us for Spring Gong Fest 2018! A collaborative informance (informal performance) showcasing the students at Salvation Army Learning Zone of Lorain with Oberlin students enrolled in Javanese Gamelan.
During spring 2018, these K-7th graders from Lorain have been traveling to Oberlin College weekly for a community-music experience using the Javanese gamelan instruments. They will perform a dolonan (a Javanese children's song) along with "The Jungle Song," for which they wrote the lyrics and scored the music.
This semester three Oberlin College students have helped facilitate the music making: Emily Edelstein, Momo Suzuki, and Phoebe Durand-McDonnell.
Students in the Javanese Gamelan will perform several pieces, including "Dara Muluk" a piece written by Nartosabdho.
All are welcome.
