Gamelan Gita Semara Concert
Gettysburg College, 300 North Washington Street
Gettysburg, PA

Gamelan Gita Semara (heavenly sound) was founded in 2010 by Dr. Brent C. Talbot and is housed at Gettysburg College. The instruments are a gamelan angklung ensemble—one of more than twenty-five distinct types of ensembles found on the island of Bali in Indonesia. The group mainly plays a classical repertoire in keeping with the ritual and religious ceremonies for which the gamelan is primarily used. Each year, Gamelan Gita Semara performs throughout Central Pennsylvania in programs of traditional and contemporary Balinese music. Artists-In-Residence programs bring the instruments to schools and universities within the region, where members of the ensemble present interactive workshops. The ensemble has worked with internationally celebrated master teacher I Ketut Gede Asnawa and in 2016 was invited by the Governor of Bali to perform at the Bali Arts Festival. Our members include Gettysburg College students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the Adams County community.
