What’s on in York: “Gamelan Sekar Petak” orchestra at York Minster

18th January 2017



Gamelan Sekar Petak first assembled at the University of York in 1981.

The orchestra of gongs and metallophones (as well as other instruments) originates from the islands of Bali and Java and was named “Sekar Petak” (“white rose”) in honour of York’s white flower symbol.

The ensemble is the first purpose-built gamelan in a British university, and often serves an educational role in the department as well as in schools in the York community. The group has toured the country extensively and made appearances for children’s programmes on BBC TV and ITV.

On Wednesday 18 January Gamelan Sekar Petak returns to the Minster for another spectacular promenade performance which will involve singers and other instrumentalists as well as the magical sounds of the gamelan itself.
Tickets for the event are FREE and the event is two and a half hours long so please pop in during night and sample some of the great sounds on offer.

This is a performance supported by the Arts Council.
