CLASSICAL MUSIC SERIES Evergreen Club Contemporary Gamelan

Date: Sat, Dec 03, 2016 08:00PM
Price: Tickets starting at $35, 10% off for Friends

Often used to solely describe Western traditions, the term "classical music" is re-examined within the context of cultural diversity in this special series of performances. Our Classical Music Series presents the sights and sounds of North Indian, Indonesian, Italian, and Syrian musical traditions. Redefine your understanding of classical music through performances that explore melodic scales, historical recordings, and new interpretations of Western repertoire.

Meet ECCG, a group of eight Toronto-based musicians who commission new works while keeping classical Indonesian music alive. Collectively known as a "gamelan" orchestra, they expertly move between traditional Indonesian and Western repertoires.
