Evening concert heralds sounds of spring

Flinders University’s Spring Concert Series will launch on Wednesday 2 September, with a mesmerising evening performance featuring our Gamelan Ensemble at the University’s Pendopo at Bedford Park.

The series represents an adjustment to the University’s popular Lunchtime Concerts which – following the Pendopo launch – will be held in the Oasis building at Bedford Park campus in the usual lunchtime slot. Small audiences are welcome, so staff are invited to register early for the events and bring a packed lunch to enjoy an hour of music-induced wellness in their break.

In another exciting change, the concerts will be available to enjoy live online and on demand.

The Flinders Spring Concert Series brings excellent musicians of international standing to the University, in a range of classical and contemporary musical styles and genres. Visit the Spring Concert Series to find out more about the performers, watch online, or reserve your seat.

These events are presented by the Flinders University Music Advisory Committee and Flinders University Alumni and Advancement.

Wednesday, 2 September 2020 – Gamelan Ensemble  
7.45pm at the Flinders Pendopo, Bedford Park
The traditional Indonesian Pendopo building at Flinders University’s Bedford Park is particularly important to gamelan musicians because it houses the variety of instruments such as metallophones, xylophones, kendang (drums) and gongs, bamboo flutes, bowed and plucked strings that make up a gamelan ensemble.

Register online to attend, or subscribe to the mailing list to be notified when the recording is available for viewing for this special concert.
