Thanksgiving has come and gone; hopefully giving you some much needed rest and even more homemade food. Now that we’re back on campus, preparing for finals, check out this week’s events and take a study break to enjoy Bucknell’s musical talents! On December 4th, The Gamelan Ensemble will be holding a concert at 7:30 p.m. in the Weiss Center’s Rooke Recital Hall.

The Bucknell Gamelan Ensemble performs traditional (angklung, gender wayand and Javanese soran-style) and modern Indonesian music. Members use a variety of traditional instruments, like metallophones, pitched gongs, gong chimes, bamboo flutes and drums and learn all of their music aurally. Come see the highly impressive Ensemble for a unique experience and a much-needed break from the Library.
