Day 11, or Concert nomer loro

Our performance last night in the Institut Seni Indonesia's was the first recital in their lovely new concert hall, which was just opened four months ago. It was exciting because we had an enthusiastic MC who announced us with flair, like rock stars, and the packed audience included many young musicians and university students. We did two encores!
Our hosts at ISI were professional, gracious, and made us feel welcomed here in Jogjakarta. We also got to try out our second set of batik outfits, which Aryo's had made especially for us by her tailor back home in Surabaya. We hope to return to Jogja for a longer period of time to perform again, teach, and collaborate with students and teachers at ISI.Align CenterNathan and Kathryn with ISI Dean Prof. Bramantyo

Wow!! The banner is IMpressive - so large! My thanks also to Aryo's mother and all those who have (obviously) done so much to make your tour a success. Kathryn, you look smashing in all the batik outfits, but especially the blue gown! I am telling more and more people to go to your blog, it is so wonderful.
