Summer 2019

Standard

The Gamelan has enjoyed two outings in the last 6 months …….

  • at the Guildhall Arts Centre,  Grantham, thirty 9 and 10-year olds were treated to a participatory music and shadow puppet [Wayang] workshop.   One lucky young person went home with his own tiny silver dragon!
  • at St Peter at Gowts Church Hall – part of an amazing medieval building  – first-year students from the University of Lincoln spent an afternoon playing traditional Javanese pieces and improvising.

PS  photos to follow in due course …

Boston Market Square, Community Activity Day, Friday 12th August 2016

Standard

Lincoln Community Gamelan was invited to deliver a day of workshops in Boston’s beautiful Market Square. The majestic St Botolphs Church towered beside us as 400 people of all ages and from all walks of life took turns together throughout the day, learning simple Javanese tunes as well as improvising. Many people enjoyed sitting on deckchairs simply watching.

A fantastic experience bringing people together on a lovely tropical summer’s day!
