Maine Marimba Ensemble

Tuesday, June 19
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
 
SUMMER CONCERT SERIES KICK-OFF!
 
Fun news! We will be offering Otto’s pizza for sale by the slice. Yum! Bring your lawn chairs and your appetite. Supplies will be limited so come early for a guaranteed hot slice!
 
Meet us outside on the lawn for the kick-off to our Summer Concert Series! Bring lawn chairs or a blanket, and picnic if you like as we welcome back the Maine Marimba Ensemble.* This group promises an evening of incredibly joyful and deeply moving traditional and contemporary music of Zimbabwe.
 
And they’ll tell us a bit of what it takes to make a marimba from scratch, and how to play one.
 
Be prepared to dance. Be prepared to smile. The largest marimba in this set of seven handcrafted marimbas is so big that the person playing it needs to stand on a bench to reach it!

This program is generously supported by the Thomas Memorial Library Foundation.

*If it rains, we’ll move the concert inside.

Maine Marimba Ensemble’s musicians include: Tchukki Andersen, Kevin Caron, Rob Cimitile, Chris Fletcher, Elliot Heeschen, Peter Himmer, Zebulon Kelley, and Matthew Wasowski. Marimba builder Jacob Wolff rounds out the group.
