Lessons on Bali

Posted: Tuesday, October 4, 2011 12:09 am

Dr. Brent Talbot, assistant professor and coordinator of music education at Gettysburg College, is surrounded by some of the fourth grade students at Arendtsville Elementary School where he is serving as guest artist. Music teacher Ann Gerlitzki is also pictured at right. Talbot is teaching the children about the music and culture of Bali, from where he has brought his knowledge of the Gamelan, a group of instruments traditional to the people of Bali. Each of the students have an opportunity to learn about the instruments, as well as Balinese puppets, games and songs.  The fourth graders will perform a concert for the public at 7 p.m. this evening at the Arendtsville Elementary School gymnasium. Dr. Talbot will continue his sessions with students at Biglerville and Bendersville through the rest of October. The program is funded through the school’s Parent Teacher Association and the Robert C. Hoffman Charitable Endowment Trust. (Bill Schwartz/Gettysburg Times)
