      hank you for responding to our mailing concerning our upcoming Klenengan.

      Please note, seats can not be reserved for this event. The rsvp gives us an idea of how many people plan to attend the event.
      Doors will open at 3:30 p.m. The event will begin at 4 p.m. and last until midnight with a dinner break (for the musicians) from 7 – 8. During this break, the audience will have a chance to learn more about the gamelan. You are welcome to come and go throughout the performance.

    For nearly three decades, our community-based gamelan ensemble has presented the classical music, dance, and shadow theater of Central Java to appreciative audiences.

As a small non-profit organization, we depend on the good will of people like you not only to help pay for guest artists and teachers (including our long-time mentor and inspirational Artistic Director, I.M.
