Gamelan Dharma Swara Blessing Ceremony & Season Launch Reception
Join us on Sunday, September 23 for two very special events to launch our 2018-2019 season.
INSTRUMENT BLESSING CEREMONY: 4PM -5:30PM
We're conducting a traditional Balinese Hindu blessing ceremony for our very own gamelan!
This is a milestone moment for Gamelan Dharma Swara, who for the last 20 years performed and practiced on borrowed instruments from generous host institutions. It will be the first one conducted since the new gamelan made its journey from Bali to New York in 2017--a spiritual awakening of the instruments in their new home. Our ceremony will be officiated by Dharma Swara Artist in Residence I Gusti Nyoman Darta and invites audience participation.
The ceremony will be followed by a music and dance performance by Gamelan Dharma Swara.
SEASON LAUNCH RECEPTION: 6PM-9PM
In the mood for a party? We'll continue the festivities with a ticketed reception that will mark the official launch of our 2018-19 season. Under the full moon and against the inspiring Manhattan Skyline, join us for an evening of food, drinks, music and mingling.
Come and commemorate our new gamelan under the full moon and against the inspiring backdrop of the Manhattan Skyline!
