“Music Goes to College” Series Continues February 4 at Trent University
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Free, Public Concert to Feature the Music of Bali
Friday, January 25, 2008, Peterborough
As part of the “Music Goes to College” series, a free, public concert featuring the Balinese gamelan ensemble, Rad Nadi, will be held in the dining hall of Trent University’s Otonabee College on Monday, February 4 at 1 p.m.
This type of ensemble, known as gendèr wayang, is commonly used to accompany the shadow puppet plays as well as ceremonies such as temple anniversaries, tooth filings and cremations. The musicians of Rad Nadi – which means ‘together as one’ – have studied in Bali and North America, and are led by Annette Sanger, who directs the gamelan groups at the University of Toronto.
The concert is the third event in this year’s “Music Goes to College” series, which is funded through the generous support of the Trent University Academic Innovation Fund and Trent’s Colleges. The series is an initiative of the Committee to Support Music Activities and Resources at Trent (SMART), spearheaded by Timothy McGee, the 2006 Ashley Fellow and an honorary professor at Trent.
