The Javanese Gamelan Orchestra is an essential accompaniment to puppet shows, dances, feasts and ceremonies in parts of Indonesia. Wesleyan University owns one of the finest sets of these beautiful instruments in the world. Housed in the World Music Hall, most of the Gamelan instruments are gong and metallaphone instruments made of bronze. The Fall 2010 session begins on Saturday, September 18th and will end with a performance for all on Thursday, December 9 at 7pm.

Rehearsals are held on Saturday mornings, from 10–11am in the World Music Hall, Center for the Arts, Wesleyan University, located on Wyllys Avenue (off of High Street).

There is a registration fee of $30, made payable to Wesleyan University, but the lessons and rehearsals are free.
