The Department of Music presents a joint concert by the UMBC Gamelan Ensemble under the direction of Michelle Purdy and the UMBC Collegium Musicum under the direction of Lindsay Johnson.

The Gamelan Ensemble will perform on a central Javanese gamelan, a gong-chime orchestra of Indonesia. Although most of the instruments of the gamelan are made of bronze, the ensemble also includes drums, xylophones, bamboo flutes, and plucked and bowed string instruments.

The UMBC Collegium Musicum explores and performs vocal and instrumental music from Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods, sampling musical repertoires created between 800 and 1750. Under the direction of Lindsay Johnson, the Collegium plays on historical instruments from the Department of Music’s collection — recorder, crumhorn, racket, cornetto, shawm, harp, guitar, drum, chamber organ, harpsichord, and Baroque violin, viola, cello, and gambas on loan from the Viola da Gamba Society of America.

Admission is free, but tickets are required. Please visit here to reserve seats.
