One of Asia's most renowned traditional musicians will join one of 
Oregon's most acclaimed world music ensembles on November 10 in a 
special concert at Lewis & Clark College. Suwardi will perform his 
original compositions and traditional Indonesian music for gamelan, the 
famous orchestra composed primarily of percussion instruments, with 
Venerable Showers of Beauty, a community ensemble that has been based at 
Lewis & Clark since 1980.

For this special performance, the Portland ensemble will also be 
directed by one of the world's greatest Javanese musicians, Midiyanto, 
who teaches gamelan at the University of California at Berkeley, and two 
of America's finest gamelan musicians, singer Jessika Kenney and 
multi-instrumentalist Jesse Snyder.

We are very grateful to the Regional Arts and Culture Council for
