Gamelan Pacifica, directed by Jarrad Powell, is joined by the Canzonetta, under the direction of Jessika Kenney, for this concert featuring choral music from the Javanese tradition, with an emphasis on the wonderful settings of Javanese poetry known as Laras Madya. The concert will feature special guest artist Heri Purwanto, a highly respected teacher and performer from Central Java and master musician of the Javanese gamelan.

Originally formed in 1980, Gamelan Pacifica has a reputation for creating diverse productions that merge traditional and contemporary musical forms with dance, theater, puppetry, and visual media. The ensemble has been a guest performer at the Smithsonian Institution's Festival of Indonesia, the New Music across America Festival, the Vancouver New Music Society, On the Boards, and the Walker Art Center. In the Northwest, it performs regularly and has appeared at venues including the University of Washington, Seattle University, Town Hall, Cornish College of the Arts, the Seattle Art Museum, Evergreen State College, Centrum, and the Bumbershoot Festival. Some of the most notable artists of Indonesia have been guests of the group, including Sutrisno Hartana, Wayan Sinti, and Didik Nini Thowok. Gamelan Pacifica's album "Trance Gong" (O. O. Discs) has received international acclaim.

The ensemble is directed by noted composer and Cornish College of the Arts professor Jarrad Powell. Gamelan Pacifica is a respected non-profit arts organization that supports various programs and special projects relating to music and dance, with an emphasis on cross-cultural and interdisciplinary collaboration. It has been the recipient of numerous grants, including support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Rockefeller Foundation, and Arts International, and is currently supported in part by sustaining funds from the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture and 4Culture.
