Conservatory of Music
This summer, a group of music students, faculty, and alumni travelled to Bali, Indonesia to conduct research on the musical and cultural practices found on the island. We learned and performed different types of gamelan, a popular Indonesian percussion ensemble, consisting of gongs, cymbals, drums, and flutes as well as metallic barred instruments you strike with a hammer. My topic explores how Balinese art is incorporated into the Balinese version of the Christian faith.
