AMSTERDAM MARIMBA WEEKEND – Fifth Edition
FOUR DAYS OF MASTER CLASSES, CLINICS, OPEN REHEARSALS, WORKSHOPS AND CONCERTS
The AMW wants 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 – present our music to our audience and invite them to discover our world of magic. All performances and activities are open to public. We are delighted that our concerts are hosted by prominent venues in Amsterdam, such as the Bimhuis, one of the most popular podia for jazz and experimental music in Europe and the Orgelpark a stunning location with at least four large pipe organs and magnificent acoustic!
Prior to that, we will of course welcome our faculty and special guests who will be giving master classes, clinics, workshops and individual lessons. The focus will be on various marimba techniques, repertoire choice, arrangements & new compositions, various genres improvisation and ensemble playing.
The Amsterdam Marimba Weekend will be hosted by Tatiana Koleva (marimba/percussion music) and Henny van den Abbeelen (Pustjens Percussion Products).
