ALL SCHOOLS, INSTITUTIONS AND INDIVIDUALS FROM AROUND THE WORLD are cordially invited to participate in the first ever EDUCATION AFRICA VIRTUAL MARIMBA AND STEELPAN FESTIVAL.
You may enter marimba bands or steel bands or mixed bands consisting of marimbas and/or steelpans and other instruments. There are also SOLO COMPETITIONS for marimba, xylophone, steelpan and vibraphone.
This Festival will also act as a fundraiser for Education Africa’s Marimba Hubs programme, so that we can continue the efficient running of this programme which directly benefits disadvantaged South African marimba bands.
The Great Lakes Steelpan Festival is the largest educational steelpan festival in the midwest. Local and visiting steelbands come to Woodstock, IL to learn from renowned guest artists from around the world. The day-long event culminates in a world-class concert featuring guest bands and artists from around the world alongside local steelband, Potts & Pans.
