Join us for an immersive marimba experience in a supportive community!

Zeltsman Marimba Festival On Tour, a branch of ZMF, are short festivals (four or six days) that capture the enthusiastic atmosphere and musical focus of ZMF`s longstanding two-week festivals. They also serve marimbists who are available only a few days. This event in Boston, the first ZMF On Tour to be held in the U.S., is generously co-sponsored by Boston Conservatory at Berklee.

Our hope is to provide every participant maximum access to the faculty over four days. Participants will have many opportunities to perform for faculty in master classes as well as small-group lessons. This allows all participants to learn from each other. The focus is on concert music---contemporary works as well as adaptations---for marimba, vibraphone, and other percussion. Some participants may be invited to perform on an evening concert open to the public.

Tuition includes access to all concerts, master classes, small-group lessons, Alexander Technique sessions, and one catered lunch and final party. Parents, guardians or teachers of participants under 18 years of age may also register and attend/observe all sessions.
