Come celebrate our three year anniversary with a fantastic performance in Asbury Hall. Gamelan is a music from Indonesia that contains an assortment of instruments including tuned metallic and wooden xylophones, gongs, hand drums, and strings. The music is ethereal, mesmerizing, and beautiful. Gamelan is one of the world’s unique art forms and Asbury Hall is the perfect setting to fully experience this extraordinary music.
