Zeltsman Marimba Festival
|Country and Region||United States — California|
|Type of Festival||Music|
|Location of Festival||Arcata, California, USA|
Zeltsman Marimba Festival, Inc. is the brainchild of Artistic Director/marimbist Nancy Zeltsman. It is an annual, two-week, summer marimba festival that occurs in different locations.
With a focus on concert marimba performance, its mission is two-fold. First, the festival brings together 40 to 50 marimbist/participants from around the world in a private seminar environment in order for them to exchange ideas and share their music. Secondly, the festival celebrates its world-class faculty performing on marimba (and vibraphone) in a series of concerts open to the public.
The music usually spans a range of styles from classical to contemporary, jazz and folk music. By changing venues from year to year, ZMF is able to bring its concert series to various communities with the hope of encouraging a greater appreciation for the marimba as a concert instrument.
|Festival Dates||June 30 - July 13, 2013|
