Keluarga Paduan Angklung SMA Negeri 3 Bandung (KPA3) is a high school-based organization which was founded in 4 October 1980 after it took part in the exhibition of 25th Anniversary of Asia-Africa Conference in Bandung. Since then, it became the pioneer in performing modern music by traditional instruments. KPA3 has had more than 400 performances since 1980 and more than 220 pieces of music in their repertoire which varies from traditional, classical, and modern compositions. Our major breakthrough was to become one of Indonesia’s leading angklung team in the format of orchestra. As time passed by, KPA3 has been performing in several performances and concerts, and has also obtained numerous achievements, both in national and international festivals. Along its journey, KPA3 has enlightened its vision in strengthening the quality of angklung tradition and making angklung as one of Indonesia’s contribution to the tapestry of the history of mankind. Further, KPA3 is strongly determined to continuously develop the interest in angklung playing for the sake of Indonesia’s identity and dignity.
Miryam Wedyaswari, M. Psi, started her career in KPA3 since 2006 as one of our youngest conductors and is now one of KPA3’s main conductors. Her conducting debut was at “Angklung Evening Concert: A Tribute to Daeng Soetigna” (one of Indonesia’s angklung figure) when she was at her sophomore year in high school. Since then, she grew into one of our leading rehearsal masters. She was the conductor for KPA3 to win the first title in “Festival Paduan Angklung ITB” in 2007 and was also the conductor for “Konser Orkestrasi Angklung IX” in Esplanade Concert Hall, Singapore back in 2011. Her subtle but expressive character and mature attitude beyond her years is clearly visible in the way she leads the music. Besides in KPA3, she also develops her conducting competency in Padjadjaran University Student Choir (PSM UNPAD). And with PSM UNPAD she went through various festivals, performances, and competitions, both locally and internationally. She recently got her Master Degree in Educational Psychology in Padjadjaran University.Back to the list of ensembles
