The Samobor Music Festival will be held September 27th-30th in Samobor Croatia. This year as part of the festival there will be a marimba week featuring Ivana Bilic and Emmanuel Sejourne. The seminar is for “performers and teachers of all ages and nationalities”. You have the ability to register as an active or passive attendant depending on if you would like to perform in the masterclasses.
I had the opportunity to meet Ivana Bilic at the Zeltsman Marimba Festival this summer. Her performance of Steve Mackey’s “The Beast” was stunning and I hope continues to be part of her repertoire. Emmanuel Sejourne is the composer of “Katamiya” which was the recent piece that was learned for the Steve Weiss interactive music contest, as well as one of my favorite marimba pieces of all time “Nancy”.
Plan a trip to Croatia and join these two world class marimbists! For more information, visit their website.
