On this site, find everythiing you need to know to register for Zeltsman Marimba Festival 2014. I hope you will join us!

We're excited that this will mark ZMF's 12th season, and sixth visit to Lawrence University's Conservatory of Music in Appleton, Wisconsin. We love it there!

Share your love for the marimba with dozens of musicians from around the world. Two weeks of inspirational study and thrilling world-class performances. As always, there is a brilliant, international faculty, and a stimulating, full schedule of events including master classes, private and open lessons, ensemble rehearsals, talks, practice, and time to share with new friends.

ZMF welcomes diversity of musical opinions---and instrument types! We are very grateful to percussion companies that support ZMF and individual performers, and we welcome all ideas for collaboration. In this spirit we are pleased to announce this generous offer to lower your ZMF tuition and cost of a new marimba! (Click on heading above. Available until May 1, 2014.)

I feel like I learned so much more over two weeks than I have in years. It was really eye opening and truly life changing. You did an amazing job creating a very supportive, encouraging, and positive environment.
