Gamelan Candra Wyoga, Wyoming’s Balinese music ensemble, will perform Thursday, Sept. 13, at the University of Wyoming.

The free public event will take place at noon on Simpson Plaza in front of the Wyoming Union.

Between sets, attendees are welcome to try the instruments themselves. The instruments were handmade in Bali, Indonesia, before being shipped to Laramie in summer 1996. They were purchased with a gift from the Allan and Regina Willman Fund. The instruments are used for teaching, and inreach and outreach throughout the state. 

Gamelan Candra Wyoga is a community ensemble guided by Balinese gamelan master I Made Lasmawan and dancer Ni Ketut Marni. "Candra" refers to the beauty of the full moon. "Wyoga" has a double meaning, indicating both "Wyoming Gamelan" and "meditation on the beauty of the full moon" -- a special pleasure in the beautiful state of Wyoming.

New members are welcome and are invited to join Gamelan Candra Wyoga’s weekly practice sessions Thursdays, from 5-7 p.m., in Room 1010 of the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts.
