BOZEMAN - The Montana State University School of Music’s Percussion Ensemble and Balinese gamelan orchestra, Gamelan Sekar Gunung, will perform its spring semester concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, in Reynolds Recital Hall. Admission is free.
The program features traditional and contemporary Balinese pieces, including “Beleganjuran,” “Pura di Puri,” “Gending Sekar Sandat” and “Tari Baris.” These works might be found in any traditional Balinese street processional or temple ceremony. The program also features two pieces written for the group: “Angklung Sabilang II” by MSU Professor Emeritus Alan Leech, plus “Sepintas Lalu” by Jeff Vick, the ensemble’s director and music instructor at MSU.
The Percussion Ensemble will perform contemporary works, including Daniel Levitan's second movement of his marimba quartet, Ivan Trevino's "Catching Shadows", Per Andreasson's "Tin Play", and close with Christopher Rouse's ode to rock drumming, "Bonham".
Reynolds Recital Hall is located in Howard Hall, across the street from the MSU Duck Pond.
