Celebrating Life and Community Through Music: Javanese Music of the Gamelan

Sunday, March 18, 2018, 10:45 am

Join us for Worship Art’s program for creating a worship experience through music.  We’ll host a visit by the Friends of the Gamelan ensemble led by Alex Yoffe.    Alex has shared these inspired thoughts:  “I am so drawn to this music because of its communal nature:  all of the instruments are necessary and each person’s part is essential to completing the piece of music.  You need a community in order to play this music;  there is no concept of a soloist.   Experts can play alongside total beginners and they can create music together.  I think that is a very powerful concept.”

This is a wonderful opportunity to invite neighbors and friends to participate in a worship service that is both innovative and a celebration of the sacred within us – we come together to share the beauty and the joy that it inspires.
