FOUR DAYS OF MASTER CLASSES, CLINICS, OPEN REHEARSALS, WORKSHOPS AND CONCERTS
The First Edition of the Amsterdam Marimba Weekend was launched in 2014 and hosted by Tatiana Koleva (marimba / percussion artist) & Henny van den Abbeelen (PPP – Amsterdam). This very spontaneous idea turned out to work quite well, with very good response from participants, guest artists and media. The second edition took place in march 2016, the third in march 2018.
The idea is to offer the opportunity to students and professionals to meet fellow musicians, make contacts, try various instruments, brands and mallets, exchange ideas, perform, experiment and talk about various pieces and styles. Celebrate, discover and keep developing the music and our beloved instrument – the marimba!
But before all – share our music with a broad audience.
All performances and activities are open to public. We are delighted to announce that our final concerts were hosted by prominent venues in Amsterdam, such as the Bimhuis, one of the most popular podia for jazz and experimental music in Europe!
