A Magical evening of gamelan and stories from South East Asia for all the family
6 August 2014
Especially created for the Church Stretton Arts Festival, Holding Up the Sky will be a unique opportunity to hear the stories and sounds of South East Asia.
Uniquely, for this performance Cassandra Wye
will be joined by members of the Southbank Gamelan Players, who will create the musical backdrop for these real and imagined worlds. They will play a selection from a repertoire that spans the thousand years of Gamelan music – from the ceremonial sounds of the courts of ancient Kings to the music created by contemporary composers for the Gamelan.
Don’t miss this magical collaboration, it’s suitable for all ages: adults and children are welcome!
