Heartland Marimba (Arts / Theatre)


The Heartland Marimba Festival began in 2014 through the vision and leadership of solo artist Matthew Coley. It is an organization that celebrates the marimba, its music, and its performers during an intensive summer festival, a series of winter holiday concerts, and biannual chamber music tours. A multifaceted organization, it offers an in-depth academy for high school and college students and aspiring performers, as well as a summer music workshop for youth ages 4-13 and community adults.

It publishes many of the compositions it champions and is actively pursuing the creation of a new market for marimba performance outside of the university. The Heartland Marimba Collective and Quartet, the public faces of the Festival, showcase the talents of students and accomplished professional artists in regional tours throughout various parts of the country. The organization strives to bring the unique music of the marimba to a wider audience and to build more opportunities for the art form and performers.

The mission of Heartland Marimba is to reach many audiences in order to support and advance the marimba, its music, composers, and performers in all ways. This is accomplished through these four components: community outreach, educational experiences, generating new repertoire, and opportunities for professionals.
