Hochstein at High Falls Concert Series Presents Gamelan Lila Muni

Thu, 06/03/2010 - 12:15pm - 12:45pm

Free noontime concerts at Granite Mills Park in High Falls.

The High Falls Business Association has once again teamed up with the Hochstein School of Music & Dance and WXXI to present Hochstein at High Falls, a noontime summer concert series.

The series includes nine outdoor concerts Thursday afternoons at 12:15pm during June and July. Weather permitting, they will be held in the Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge and will feature a potpourri of musical artists and instructors. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating, food and beverages during each performance, which will run approximately 30 minutes. WXXI-FM afternoon host Chris Van Hoff will introduce the featured musical talent each week, and acts may include light classical, jazz, funk, Latin, Celtic, or pops music.

The June 3 concert features Gamelan Lila Muni, a Balinese gamelan angklung orchestra. The ensemble plays a large variety of music ranging from traditional, ceremonial music to modern secular dances.

You can also tune in to Classical 91.5 the morning of Thursday, June 3 between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. to hear WXXI-FM's Chris Van Hof talk with the ensemble.
