AMSTERDAM MARIMBA WEEKEND – Second Edition

FRIDAY 4, SATURDAY 5 & SUNDAY 6 MARCH 2016
STUDIO GENERATOR / PPP-AMSTERDAM & BIMHUIS, AMSTERDAM

THREE DAYS OF MASTER CLASSES, CLINICS, OPEN REHEARSALS AND CONCERTS

The focus will be on various marimba techniques, repertoire choice, arrangements & new compositions, improvisation and ensemble playing. Each of the guest artist will give a master class or a clinic. There will be a possibility to sign in for individual lessons. All the participants will have the opportunity to perform on the Friday evening concert upon faculty recommendation.

The idea is to offer the opportunity to meet many fellow musicians, make contacts, try various instruments, brands, techniques and mallets, exchange ideas, perform, and talk about your favorite pieces, genres and styles. Let’s not forget shopping and site seeing! Celebrate, discover and keep developing the music and our beloved instrument – the marimba!

The Amsterdam Marimba Weekend will be hosted by Henny van den Abbeelen and Tatiana Koleva.

This Event is supported by Pustjens Percussion Products, ADAMS and Concorde.
