The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill department of music will be hosting a UNC World Music Concert featuring Gamelan Nyai Saraswati and South Indian classical music and dance will take place Tues., April 9, 2013 at 7:30 PM in Hill Hall Auditorium.
The ensemble began to meet informally at the Chapel Hill Museum soon thereafter and gave its first concert to a small audience of friends in June 2001. Now, the gamelan currently resides in Hill Hall on the UNC campus, and the ensemble performs regularly scheduled concerts at UNC as well as throughout the Triangle and the state. Members of the ensemble (several of whom had no previous musical experience before joining) include students and faculty from UNC and other universities in the Triangle, as well as members of the surrounding community.
Please contact David Garcia, director of graduate studies at the department of music, with additional questions.
