The concert will mark the tenth anniversary of the founding of the ensemble by Professor of ethnomusicology Andrew Weintraub. Voice of America will broadcast segments of the program on Indonesian T.V., highlighting Pitt’s creative engagement with Indonesian music and culture. The program will explore a variety of musical styles, from the powerful sound of the gamelan to the contemplative strains of zither and flute.
