When I was a guest at the Festival, I saw how each student was being reached and encouraged -- the atmosphere was absolutely unique. I think your festival is tremendously important, both to the establishment of the marimba as a serious concert instrument and to the individual player, understanding their role in the development of the personality and technical possibilities of the instrument and the development of their own musicianship.

Andrew Thomas, composer (May 2017)
