Gamelan Concert Tonight

We're onstage at Bellefield Hall in Pittsburgh (across from the Cathedral of Learning and Heinz Chapel) at 8:00 tonight and tomorrow. These are the university gamelan's major performances, which normally include Indonesian guest artists. Tickets are $10 general admission, $5 students/seniors, free with Pitt student ID, and you can read all the official details on the Music Dept's blog.
Our dress rehearsal went until about 1:00am last night but despite its length it was pretty good as such things go. Most of the students only perform in the first half of the program, so it was our first chance to hear what the guest artists were planning without us. The first half focuses on traditional Sundanese gamelan while the second half is more of an introduction to different kinds of recent Sundanese popular music. By the end of the dress rehearsal, those of us not onstage were having a wild dangdut dance party, so I feel confident that the audience will have a fine time too.
