7.30pm: LSO Community Gamelan Group concert
Come and immerse yourself in an exciting performance of traditional and contemporary Balinese music, plus some new arrangements to celebrate the tenth birthday of LSO St Luke’s. Programme to also include a past commission of John Adams’ Short Ride in a Fast Machine.

Gamelan has been at the heart of LSO St Luke’s since its inception with a room specially designed to house this unique orchestra of bronze gongs and metallophones. Suitable for all levels of musical experience, the gamelan brings people together like no other set of instruments and it forms an integral part of the education and community programme at the Centre – from school workshops to office teambuilding days to public concerts.

This particular gamelan (named Semara Wertih or ‘pure, sincere desire’) was made in 2003 by I Made Gabeleran of Blahbatuh, Bali. Elaborately carved and painted, with floral patterns, guardian demons and scenes from the Ramayana, it is the only gamelan of its kind in London and forms part of an extensive education and community programme for LSO Discovery based at LSO St Luke’s.

The LSO St Luke’s Community Gamelan Group, who perform a mixture of traditional and contemporary Balinese music this evening, was founded in 2003 by LSO Discovery. They meet weekly during term time at LSO St Luke’s where they are the resident performers on this wonderful gamelan. Alongside them are regular collaborators Lila Cita, a Britishbased professional Balinese music group founded by Andy Channing, who is also the principal tutor of the LSO Discovery gamelan education programme.

Tickets: £7  (£5 concessions)
Tickets are available on the door, or you can book online
